The Disproportionate Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Women in the Workforce
February 14 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The U.S. Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute, welcomes Patrick Clapp as he presents, “The Disproportionate Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Women in the Workforce.” Women in the workforce faced steeper job losses and slower job recovery than men across the nation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Patrick will share research prepared using the LEHD program’s Quarterly Workforce Indicators data with breakdowns of which industries were heavily impacted, how the impacts to women differed by state, and what recovery looks like in the latest available data.
