There’s no denying that the pandemic has changed our lives and daily routines, and that’s especially true for women. In September, nearly one million women left the workforce because of the pandemic. This hour on Disrupted, we talk to a panel of women about the deepening challenges women are facing during this pandemic.

This conversation was part of a panel sponsored by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven in partnership with The Community Fund for Women and Girls. Dr. Brown-Dean also currently serves as Chair of the Board for the Community Foundation.

GUESTS: 

Melissa Boteach – Vice President for Income Security, Childcare and Early Learning at the National Women’s Law Center

Beth Bye – Connecticut’s Commissioner for the Office of Early Childhood

Thais Moore – Director of Marketing & Communications at Lockton Companies
