Hybrid Work: Opportunities and Challenges for Women and Members of Historically Excluded Communities

Panel Discussion: Twenty-five seats are reserved for your organization; more can be allocated as space allows.

Date: Thursday, March 3, 2022
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00pm ET

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a new appreciation for a flexible workplace. In many cases, employees could be more productive when working in a flexible, remote, or hybrid setting. However, mounting data demonstrates that the pandemic’s most dire outcomes disproportionately impact employees of historically excluded communities – including LGBTQ communities, women, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and people with disabilities. This panel discussion will invite leaders to share best practices, challenges, and trends about how organizations can utilize flexible and hybrid work while preventing the introduction of new hurdles for the most affected populations. In addition, virtual and flexible work provides opportunities and challenges related to peoples’ unique identities and experiences (leveling the playing field for some, exacerbating existing inequities for others).

Where does your organization stand on hybrid work? What is working, and what pitfalls do we all need to avoid?
