BPW Denver and Virtual chapters are also happy to be hosting Barbara Brooks and Guadalupe Hirt, Creators of Second Act Women, as our next speakers for our Back to Basics series at 7pm on February 24th, where they will be presenting about “5 Tips to Protect your Career During a COVID-19 Shecession”.

Presentation Synopsis:

At the onset of 2020, women in the U.S. held more jobs than men for the first time in a decade. While the numbers were close, economists noted they expected this trend to gain momentum. Then COVID-19 happened, and more than 2 million women left the workforce in 2020.

Women witnessed the effects of a global pandemic unfold at their kitchen tables and explode during Zoom calls. In an instant, we became teachers, nurses, nannies, concierge, chefs, and

cleaners, on top of being a businesswoman. Some of us were laid off, furloughed, promoted with no pay raise. And the list goes on.

While our 2020 reality still lingers, change is possible. Join the founders of SecondActWomen to learn what you can do now to navigate the COVID-19 shecession and protect your career…and your sanity.
