The GWUN sisters warmly invite you to our on-line forum on the impacts of the global pandemic on working women.

It’s widely recognised that women have been on the front lines of the pandemic and have also lost more jobs, more pay and more work hours than me. Our speakers will discuss a range of issues affecting working women followed by time for questions and discussion.

Please join us via the Zoom link below.
