August 28 Webinar: Will the Pandemic Force Women to Choose Between a Career or a Family?

Posted on: August 8th, 2020 by Arogya World

Arogya World’s COVID-19 webinar series continues as we look at the new school season and the added stress and strain this places on working women and children.  Some have suggested that once school resumes, a lack of child care and other work and economic hurdles may force women to temporarily leave the job market while caring for children at home.

In Arogya’s latest webinar, August 28 at 11:30 am EST, panelists will share their feelings and experiences about the health and well-being of their children, their ability to remain successful in the job market while juggling demands of career and home, and their recommendations for working mothers on a personal, community and policy level.
