Workplace Application:
Learn insights from focus group research about what women need to attract and retain them in these postpandemic times. 

What has happened to the women who where employed in February 2020 but are not employed now? With 10 million job openings and unemployment at historic lows, critical questions become: Why would women specifically exit the workforce? What are they doing instead? And most importantly, how can we attract and retain them? This presentation shares the results of 18 focus groups conducted in March of 2022, including audio clips of their responses for increased understanding.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn five specific reasons why women are making the choices they are making.
  • Learn three things women said they need from their employers---and it's not more pay.
  • Learn one thing every manager can do to increase job retention by 20% or more.
