A new report, “Women in the Workplace,” by the consulting firm McKinsey & Co. illustrates how the pandemic imposed an especially heavy toll on working women. It found that one in three women over the past year had thought about leaving their jobs or “downshifting” their careers.
Finding balance between career, family and community continues to be a struggle for women in the workforce, especially for working mothers. The COVID-19 crisis has illuminated the struggles to prioritize family and career. Challenges in balancing career and family often result in feelings of exhaustion, inadequacy, guilt, and unhappiness.
