The COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated shift to working from home on a remote or hybrid basis, has presented a setback for gender equality in the workplace across the globe. In many ways, the pandemic has reversed progress and has exposed the reality of pre-existing workplace disparities. 

Sheppard Mullin’s Women in Healthcare Leadership Collaborative is pleased to host a virtual conversation with Bird & Bird to discuss these important issues. 

Topics will include:

  • Gender equity issues in Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific
  • Challenges around collecting and using diversity data
  • The impact of the pandemic on gender equity
  • Practical tips for leaders to promote gender equity in hybrid/remote teams

This event will include a presentation followed by a discussion, where audience participation is highly encouraged.

Presented By:

  • Mikela Sutrina (Moderator), Partner, Labor & EmploymentSheppard Mullin
  • Pattie Walsh, Partner and Head of the Asia-Pacific International Employment Group, Bird & Bird
  • Emily Clark, Senior Associate, International Employment Group, Bird & Bird
  • Rob Briggs, Senior Associate, International Employment Group, Bird & Bird
