Striving for empowerment through female-focused CPE

"According to analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, throughout the course of the pandemic, women have lost 5.4 million jobs, 1 million more jobs than men.

"The long-term effects of pandemic stress, or post-COVID-19 stress disorder, are still unknown, but they are apparent and far-reaching. Here, too, Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation research reports that there's a gender gap, with 53 percent of women reporting a negative impact on their mental health compared to 37 percent of men."

Not only does this excerpt from Annie Mueller's "What We Lose When Women Leave the Workplace" point to a need for pay equity, more balanced responsibilities and increased workplace flexibility, but also access to women-specific education.

The OSCPA's virtual Women's Empowerment Summit is dedicated to women navigating the accounting profession and will take place November 17 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:25 p.m.
