Many reports are emerging that the impact of COVID-19 is not being experienced equitably. Women in particular would appear to be shouldering a greater share of the burden.
The Australian Gender Equality Council (AGEC) have partnered with the University of Queensland and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on men’s and women’s careers.
The purpose of this research project is to gain a clear understanding of the COVID-19 environment and its potential impact upon women’s ongoing career progression through a shift in the division of domestic labour as well as disparate effects upon women in different working environments.
The survey results will:
- inform a report outlining the impact of COVID-19 on the ongoing working lives of men and women
- assist in providing recommendations to organisations and policy suggestions to state and federal government.
As a member of AGEC, Women & Leadership Australia strongly supports this research and hopes you will take the time to participate. The greater the number of people participating, the greater will be the impact of the findings, and the harder for the findings to be ignored.
