Ontario’s She-Covery: Confronting the Economic Impacts of COVID-19 on Women
The COVID-19 crisis is having a disproportionate economic impact on women, bringing their workforce participation rate to a record low. For the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) and its members, the business case is simple: Diversity and inclusion are a precondition to Ontario’s recovery and economic prosperity.
