Women at the Frontline of the Recovery

Women at the Frontline of the Recovery

Some fear the COVD-19 pandemic may mean many women leaving the labour market forever. Join us to debate how our economies and societies should recognise—and reward—the paid and unpaid work largely provided by women.

As part of an OECD Forum series, the virtual event Women at the Frontline of the Recovery took place on 31 March 2022.  This event has ended and registration is now closed—but don't worry, you can still ► watch the replay!

What is your perspective about work-life balance and gender equality after the two-months summer vacations kids had?

Started about 1 year ago

I have the impression that work-life balance is a nice word to add to speeches or policies but in reality it should be practiced by every individual. Recognizing biases and being cognizant that people (men and women) need time off, these practices should come from the top by example. People with kids need to have timeoff to be with their children and we do not want to be at disadvantage. What is your perspective? what is your experience?
