March is Women’s History month, usually a cause for celebration in the workplace. But this year, unfortunately, most of the news regarding women in the workforce has been COVID-related and negative in nature. Over the last year, positions traditionally held by women, such as those in the service or retail industry, have disappeared, some seemingly overnight. At the same time, women have also been called upon like never before to step in as virtual school teachers for their children and caregivers for their families and communities – even when doing so leaves them with no choice but to resign from traditional 9-5 positions. The result is that women have been disproportionately financially impacted in what has been termed the “shesession.”
