Leaders & Daughters 2021: Reversing the “She-cession”

The pandemic sidelined female leaders. Let’s get back on track. 

COVID-19 has hit everyone hard—but women have absorbed a particularly painful blow. Globally, women’s job losses due to COVID-19 are 1.8 times greater than men’s. And for those female leaders who have retained their jobs, many are experiencing extreme burnout, working three full-time jobs between their employers, educating children at home, and taking on a disproportionate share of household responsibilities. Men are also feeling the strain, with some opting to spend more time with their families and split the household responsibilities more equally. However, if women continue to exit the workforce at these rates—whether by choice or by job loss—the impact of a “she-cession” will be felt for years to come.

Organizations must rise to the challenge of attracting and retaining current and potential female leaders, or risk losing much needed perspectives, ideas, and talent and undoing years of gender diversity progress. Egon Zehnder’s 2021 Leaders & Daughters event series examines what men and women can do to reverse the negative effects of a she-cession brought on by the global pandemic and to continue to support the next generation of female leaders.

Read the biggest insights from our past Leaders & Daughters events.

 

Most events will be virtual this year. Stay tuned for more information.

Celebrating Five Years

In 2019, we celebrated five years of convening Leaders & Daughters events, aimed to address the needs and requirements of the next generation of female leaders. We have brought together more than 6,000 leaders, daughters and mentees through our 85 events around the world.

Since our first Leaders & Daughters event in London in 2015, we have expanded our program to as many as 40 events in one year. Many of the events run in March in conjunction with International Women’s Day. We hope that these important conversations will help to create more opportunities for the female leaders of tomorrow.
