We’re Investigating How the COVID-19 Job Market is Leaving Young Women Behind. We Want to Hear Your Stories.
Help us investigate the impact of the pandemic on young women’s employment
Young women were one of the groups that left the workforce the fastest at the beginning of the pandemic, and the most recent labour statistics show that young women are unemployed at a rate three times higher than that of young men.
As workplaces slowly start to open back up in many parts of the country, young people face bleak employment prospects.
We’re investigating the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on women’s employment, and we want to hear from young women and female-identified folks about the challenges they face trying to enter or re-enter the workforce.
Get in touch with us:
- If you’re a recent grad (high school, college or university) who is having trouble starting your career.
- If you took time off to care for your family members, or you moved back home, and are struggling to get back to work.
- If you lost your job during the pandemic and aren’t being called back to work.
