Description 

The COVID-19 shutdown has stretched out time, money, and patience as everyone struggles to balance the needs of careers, children and more. Women and minorities are the hardest hit: four times as many women dropped out of the workforce as men in September 2020, with Latina and Black women seeing the highest levels of unemployment. The Biden Administration’s COVID recovery plans promise to prioritize climate and equity alongside economic growth — can those values carry over to a post-pandemic workforce that doesn’t leave anyone behind? How will climate resilience be built into America's economic recovery?

Join us for a conversation on building back an inclusive and green economy with Julian Brave NoiseCat, vice president of policy & strategy at Data for Progress, Julie Pullen, director of product at Jupiter Intelligence, and Alicia Seiger, managing director of the Sustainable Finance Initiative at Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy.
