Marking a new dawn for the United States, President Biden recently revoked the diversity training ban and replaced it with a new executive order on advancing equity for underserved communities.
This comes as employment inequality for the underrepresented workforce spirals as a by-product of the pandemic. Women accounted for 100% of 140,000 jobs lost in December alone, and are still down 5.4 million jobs from February as compared to 4.4 million for men. Whilst one million people with disabilities (1 in 5) have also lost their jobs since the onset of the crisis.
Available to discuss the impact the pandemic is having on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I), and how businesses should be responding, we have Miranda Collard, Global Chief Client Officer and Chair of TP Women at Teleperformance.
Miranda heads the global initiative TP Women and is a leader and advocate for supporting women in technology, who are currently severely underrepresented in the sector. She can comment on:
- How Biden’s new laws will affect business.
- How no woman’s career should be put on hold – coronavirus is creating a new normal for the female workforce.
- Diversity is a company’s source of strength – gender and disability equality brings organizational performance, motivation, and talent.
Teleperformance Group (approx. $17bn) is America’s largest call center operator, helping over 1000 clients to elevate their customer and employee experiences and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 for a vulnerable public.
