How companies can impact social equity

WEDNESDAY, 8/09/2021

12:00 – 13:15 CET





First of a series of events exploring the potential impacts of COVID on different social groups.

In this session we focus on the impact of the Pandemic on life and work opportunities for women:

  • How has the employment market changed during the pandemic?
  • What are the opportunities and threats in the area of inclusion and diversity?
  • How can we respond?
  • What will happen if we do nothing?
  • Case studies: State Street and Z Zurich Foundation and the Zurich Krakow Service Centre

The information we will be bringing to the table includes Poland-wide research on the topic commissioned by State Street in partnership with the women’s weekly magazine, Wysokie Obcasy.
