Workplace 2.2: HR Considerations Moving Forward



This webinar series includes three 60-minute sessions. Descriptions for each session are included below.

Day 1 —  A Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for Canada: Making the Economy Work for Everyone
Tuesday, October 27 (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET)

In this session, YWCA Canada will highlight the disproportionate impact COVID-19 has had on women, Two-Spirit and gender diverse people. The economic freefall has led to declines in women’s labour market participation not seen since the 1980s. All hope is not lost. There is a better way forward. That’s why YWCA Canada in partnership with the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto came together to create Canada’s Feminist Economic Recovery Plan, the first nationally-focused one in the world. Tune in to learn about this 8-point plan that provides a blueprint for Canada’s post-COVID-19 recovery so that the economy works for everyone. The speaker of this session is Maya Roy, CEO of YWCA Canada, the nation’s largest and oldest gender equity organization.

Day 2 — Return to Work: Everything You Need to Know
Tuesday, November 3 (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET)
