What a new era of flexible work could mean for working women

When today’s children enter the workplace, it will not even cross their minds when, where and how they work. Organizations around the globe have been working towards more flexible working environments, but Canada has stayed behind. In a 2017 report by Regus, “The Workplace Revolution”, saw less than 11% of business people in Canada report that they work remotely all week. Until now.

The global pandemic of COVID-19 ushered in an immediate need for Canadian organizations to get on board with remote working, but is it here to stay? What will the future of work look like and is flexible and agile working here to stay? Will remote working globalize the workforce even more? How will Canadian women stand to benefit from these fundamental structural shifts?

We will engage our three expert panelists to deep dive into a current discussion that seeks to find out ‘What a new era of flexible work could mean for working women.’
