“I’m just glad I brushed my hair today.” The challenges, and some strategies, for working moms during a global pandemic.

A year ago, things were looking good for working women. At the end of 2019, the number of women in the workplace surpassed the number of men for the first time in a decade. But the pandemic has driven so many women out of the workforce to that years of progress could be undone, according to a recent report from McKinsey & Company.

In this episode, Annie Kurdziel and Elizabeth Newman from McKinsey & Company, join us to discuss the challenges they face as working moms as well as some strategies for individuals, managers and leadership as the United States approaches the one-year mark on widespread remote work and school.

Also in this episode, Laurie Heavey from sponsor ClearBalance talks about new research on patient-friendly payment and Brad Dennison, HFMA's director of content strategy, discusses the hottest new HFMA content including hfm's December cover story about the financial risks of deferred care.

After you listen, head over to the Open Forum in HFMA's Community and discuss what strategies you, or your organization, are employing to make things better for working parents.
