After more than half century of progress, the COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the women’s labor force participation back many decades as they grapple with job and child care loss. Will this permanently set women back? How long will it take for the economy to recover? Our presenter, Professor Betsey Stevenson will cover the current state of the macro economy with a focus on how the pandemic and government policy responses have affected the labor market and the shape of the economic recovery.
