Women Moving Markets: A Force for Social Change
The disruptions of the past two years have brought unprecedented changes to the American workforce, especially when it comes to the role of women, who remain 2 million jobs short of pre-Covid employment levels. As we rebuild our economy in the wake of the pandemic, we must do so in a way that fully enables and values the contributions of women.
To discuss the challenges ahead, Social Finance CEO and Co-Founder Tracy Palandjian joined Boston Impact Initiative CEO Betty Francisco for “Women Moving Markets: A Force for Social Change,” a panel on women, opportunity, and economic mobility moderated by Linda Henry, CEO of Boston Globe Media, and sponsored by PNC Bank as part of its 12th annual Women in Business Week.
"Right now, whether you go to a training program or even to a four-year degree institution, they are collecting tuition dollars no matter what happens to you after you graduate. Our idea is to make sure the educational institution has skin in the game."
