The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the labor force nationwide and underscores the particular challenges women face in balancing family and workplace responsibilities.

The long term impacts of the pandemic will likely result in greater inequality between men and women in occupational attainment, lifetime earnings, and economic independence.

Businesses should adapt their workplace policies to the continuing health threat and social disruption posed by the pandemic. By providing working parents the time, information, services, and resources they need to cope with the crisis, family-friendly policies and practices can make an importance difference in people's lives.

We need businesses to be our partner in the return to work: not create obstacles. The post-COVID job market needs to bring women, especially moms, to the table--not lock them out of the room.
