Event description
Ontario’s She-Covery: Confronting the Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on Women

About this Event

The COVID-19 crisis is having a disproportionate economic impact on women, bringing their workforce participation rate to a record low. For the OCC and its members, the business case is simple: Diversity and inclusion are a precondition to Ontario’s recovery and economic prosperity.

Join us (virtually) on September 23rd as we sit down with government to discuss women’s economic recovery in Ontario and explore the findings of the OCC’s latest report, The She-Covery Project: Confronting the Gendered Economic Impacts of COVID-19 in Ontario.
