Work has changed dramatically for many women over the past 4 years. The decisions they grapple with have changed: For some, it’s not where to work, but if to work; not whether to pursue a promotion, but which job offers a hybrid or fully remote workplace; not whether to work part-time or full-time, but whether to stay in a job or quit to start your own business. Flexibility is the top priority for millions of women, but given the rising costs of everything from housing to food, financial security and affordability are also urgent considerations. Women are struggling to make ends meet and want to know that there are plenty of job opportunities out there to meet their goals.
Women need policies that maximize flexibility and create diverse work opportunities. The third edition of “Working for Women” advances solutions that place women—not government—in the driver’s seat to build the careers and lives that they want for themselves and their families.
