The Women United Speaker Series and Tocqueville United Signature Series are combining once again to deliver our final virtual event of 2021, bringing together Women United and Tocqueville Society members for an inspiring conversation about mentorship. Our host Deshauna Barber will sit down with United Way Worldwide’s new CEO Angela Williams for a discussion about the mentors in their lives as well as the importance of giving time to people at all stages of life and career. We will also hear from United Ways with strong mentorship programs about both the risks and rewards of mentoring. To encourage attendees to lead in their communities as mentors, we will issue a mentorship challenge to all Women United and Tocqueville Society members. Don’t miss our last event of the year!

Gender Equity in the Time of COVID

March 10, 2021, 2:00-3:00 PM ET

COVID-19 has laid bare the racial and gender inequities in our society. Recent studies show that the pandemic is having a disproportionately negative impact on women—particularly women of color —in multiple ways. Women are losing jobs in greater numbers than men; are doing most of the housework, child-rearing, and homeschooling, even when both parents are home; are experiencing an increase in domestic violence; and are continually underrepresented in government and leadership positions. According to the World Economic Forum, COVID-19 is the biggest setback to gender equality in a decade. 

United Way is activating our Women United leaders across the country to spotlight the challenges faced by women and take action in the fight for gender equity. Together, we will create lasting change to lift entire communities. Join this virtual event for an in-depth discussion of how women are faring in the pandemic and how to advocate for policies that will help them thrive and succeed.
