The COVID-19 pandemic is putting an unprecedented and significant strain on the global economy and public health systems. It is also highlighting, and magnifying inequalities and the multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination faced by women and girls. The pandemic is moving beyond a global health crisis and morphing into a labour market, social and economic crisis, posing a serious threat to women’s employment and livelihoods, especially in precarious informal and non-essential sectors, and to their mental and physical wellbeing. The webinar will be an information session on how private sector could reduce immediate risks to employees, what are the policies or activities to apply during COVID-19, while also reducing the overall economic impact. The speakers will showcase the available tools and resources available to use and dissemination.
