EGAL's Playbook for an Equitable Recovery
So happy to have provided input to this great new resource from the Center for Equity, Gender and Leadership (EGAL) at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.
From the EGAL team:
"This summer we researched how the pandemic is impacting workers of color and women, as well as corporate responses.
We found that only 19% of Fortune 100 companies included care of elderly, children, or family as an accepted reason a worker can use additional paid time off during COVID-19. In addition, 62% haven't changed paid leave policies during COVID to offer more sick and care days, even though 80% of workers entered the pandemic without a SINGLE day of paid sick or care leave. These gaps are disproportionately hurting workers of color and female workers.
The pandemic offers us a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reflect and reimagine what business could be.
In our new playbook for business leaders, we outline new data and strategies to move us towards an equitable future." Check it out here: https://lnkd.in/gpDFADX
