Description

The numbers are jarring. Since March 2020, nearly 2.5 million women have left the U.S. workforce, compared with 1.8 million men. One of the women who left was Farida Mercedes. Before the pandemic, Farida was on a fast-track in a corporate job she loved. But then she made the tough decision to leave. We'll hear Farida's story. We'll also hear from Laura Zarrow, Executive Director of People Analytics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, about some of the reasons women have been dropping out of the workforce, and how data and flexible work could bring them back.

For extra reading, see this recent article from Citrix about the importance of bringing women back into the workforce, particularly into leadership roles: Female leadership and diversity fuel tomorrow’s innovations. Learn more about Wharton People Analytics  and Laura Zarrow.
