WEBINAR: Covid 19 and Gender Balance: The hidden pandemic

Executive level insights from INSEAD, BNP Paribas and WEConnect based in USA and SG.

As Covid19 continues to impact lives and livelihoods across the globe, it is easy to lose sight of the less obvious but highly insidious effect that the pandemic is having on gender balance. Early evidence suggests that the pandemic may be disproportionately affecting women around the world. Can we avoid having COVID-19 disrupt the hard-earned progress towards creating a more gender balanced society and workplace? Are there steps we can take now to ensure that we are positioned for post-Covid recovery with a diverse and balanced workforce? 

In this webinar, Dr Vinika D. Rao, Executive Director of the INSEAD Gender Initiative & Emerging Markets Institute shared insights from the INSEAD Gender Initiative and the results of their recent survey.

Dr Vinika D. Rao has then moderated and participated to a panel discussion with Diana SENANAYAKE, Chief Executive Officer for Singapore, BNP Paribas Securities Services and Elizabeth A. VAZQUEZ, CEO and Co-Founder of WEConnect on how the pandemic is impacting gender balance in their organizations.
