The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the way we work and live has presented each of us with unprecedented challenges. The burdens of the pandemic being born by women — seen in job losses, those leaving the workforce and the disproportionate mindshare of running family life at home — threaten to set back the gains women have made in recent years. Now, more than ever, too many women are being forced to choose between being successful in their jobs or successful in their roles at home. As leaders continue to plan for what our world will look like after the pandemic, there is an urgent need — and opportunity — to create a new normal that’s a better normal, not just for women but for everybody.
