Panel: The future of equality: Understanding what COVID-19 has revealed about gender equality in the UK and how we can respond to accelerate the pace of change Inspired by the work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and dedicated to her memory
Recent research has shown overwhelmingly that UK women took on more household, care and home education responsibility than men during lockdown. They were also more likely to be furloughed if they had children.
During this discussion, we’ll be challenging a diverse panel of experts to open up a thought-provoking and practical conversation about how every one of us can support progress on gender equality, touching on:
How our subconscious identity and the neuroscience of gender roles affects us, our roles and responsibilities, and how better understanding can support us in achieving equality at home and at work
How we can all enter into constructive, sensitive dialogue about gender bias
How every one of us can contribute to progress
How increased flexible working and sharing parental leave contributes to enhanced equality
