Women's Wellness & the Ripple Effects of the Pandemic

The pandemic has brought new challenges to women’s wellness — creating a disparate negative impact on women’s physical, sexual, reproductive and mental health, and widening existing disparity in women’s healthcare.

Join us for an impactful 75 minutes where change leaders will discuss the effects of the pandemic on women’s wellness and healthcare, both in and out of the workplace. Brought to you by The Stir: BAB’s diversity, equity and inclusion series.

During the pandemic, we’ve seen that a significantly higher percentage of women as compared to men skipped health care services. Women’s mental health has been disproportionately impacted with greater numbers of women experiencing anxiety, depression and stress. Not to mention, how the pandemic has drastically affected women’s reproductive choices, as well as their access to reproductive care.

What can business leaders and governments do to ameliorate these effects, and provide the resources that women need to close this gap?
