The Way Forward Leader Lunch Break: Denise Reading

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

The Way Forward Leader Lunch Breaks are a series of virtual (via Zoom) discussion and workshops on topics to help you move forward in our new and uncertain world.

Noon-12:45 p.m.

Denise Reading (LC 2003), CEO, GetWorkerFIT and LDR Worldwide

Why Stemming the Exodus of Women from the Workforce is an Economic & Social Imperative

What happens if 25% of women actually leave the workforce, change or downsize their careers?  According to a 2020 study published by McKinsey, in partnership with LeanIn.org, a serious side-effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is the negative impact on women and the potential consequences organizations will face as a result.

Join a discussion with Dr. Denise Reading and Ursuline College’s Institute for Women, Wellness & Work to:

  • Better understand the drivers behind the female exodus.
  • Recognize the potential impact this exodus will have on:
    • Social justice, advocacy, and inclusion.
    • Corporate performance.
    • The long-term welfare of women and children.
  • Understand the actions you and your organization can take to reverse the impact of the pandemic on women.
