Summer is over and most children are not physically back in school. Working families (especially mothers) are struggling to manage it all – work, childcare, housework, COVID-19, racial injustice and overall life in 2020. While the daily struggle is real, we believe, based on research we conducted in May 2020, that the US will emerge from the global health pandemic with less distinct gender norms and increased workplace flexibility, which combined will neutralize the stigma of the mommy track and increase the retention and promotion of women in business.

One of the keys to success in life and business is learning to remain resilient despite the most challenging times. Professional women can find their resilience tested daily through demands from work, family, aging parents, and other sources.

Please join us for an important and timely Fireside Chat with Carolynn Johnson, CEO of DiversityInc and Board Member of the RBS Center for Women in Business, and Lisa Kaplowitz, Assistant Professor and Director of the RBS Center for Women in Business.
