The She-Covery Project: Confronting the Gendered Economic Impacts of COVID-19 in Ontario

In conversation with government

The COVID-19 crisis is having a disproportionate economic impact on women, bringing their workforce participation rate to a record low. Mounting evidence highlights the critical importance of diversity and inclusion to Ontario’s recovery and economic prosperity.

On September 23rd join us in partnership with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce as we sit down with members of the government to discuss women’s economic recovery in Ontario and examine the OCC's latest report, presented in collaboration with the Ontario Power Generation, the Diversity Institute, and the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub: The She-Covery Project: Confronting the Gendered Economic Impacts of COVID-19 in Ontario.

  • Dr. Wendy Cukier - Professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategy, and WEKH Director, Ryerson University
  • The Hon. Jill Dunlop - Ontario's Associate Minister of Children and Women's Issues
  • Heather Ferguson - Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Ontario Power Generation
