Covid-19: Women, Equity, and Inclusion in the Future of Work (Report)

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, leaders—from CEOs to new managers—have recognized that work has changed in profound ways, and it’s never going back to the way it was. Uncertainty and fear are rampant. Social inequalities are magnified. Empathy and trust have become critical as physical distancing makes connecting across differences particularly challenging. And companies around the world have been forced into an unplanned experiment with remote and flexible working.

This disruption is unprecedented and shocking. But it also is an opportunity for corporate leaders to assess what they value, how they lead, and how their teams work together. If we take this time to proactively reimagine our future, we can shed old priorities, choices, habits, and exclusionary behaviors and clear the slate for new, better ones that benefit business and people. We can design a more equitable, inclusive, and fulfilling workplace in which people can belong, contribute, and thrive.

Catalyst has a map to this new path, and its guiding light is inclusion. Drawing upon research and our expertise in creating workplaces that work for women, we chart our course around five strategies that will turbocharge the journey to a more inclusive future of work.
