Women in Produce: Overcoming the She-Cession Together

Tuesday, March 30 | 2:00-3:30 PM ET — SOLD OUT

Prior to the pandemic, women made up the majority of the U.S. workforce. When the pandemic abruptly disrupted travel, leisure, and life as we knew it, women’s careers were disproportionally impacted. According to a survey of women leaders conducted by Chief:

  • 71% of women leaders they are shouldering a higher level of professional responsibility since the start of the pandemic.
  • 77% of women leaders who are not caregivers feel that they’ve had to work harder in the workplace than their co-workers who are also caregivers.
  • Stress and isolation have increased for almost everyone, with 68% of the women reporting feeling more isolated and lonelier, while 77% reported being “more” or “much more” stressed.

And the good news: 90% of women feel an obligation to speak up for other women during these times, and 66% say they are more open to discussing their stress levels with colleagues now then before the pandemic.

Come together with women from across the fresh produce industry to address the she-cession we’re experiencing, and explore ways to overcome new obstacles. Through this two-part engagement, attendees also will interact with each other in one-on-one meetings, curated by United Fresh. Be part of the solution by joining the discussion!
