Resources to advance gender equity in the workplace.

NAVIGATING COVID-19 WITH A GENDER LENS The Commission is putting together resources for employers as they navigate this difficult time.  

The Columbus Women’s Commission compiled a playbook for local business leaders to provide potential workplace policies, programs and solutions to support their working families. It is our hope that this playbook will inform and inspire flexible, innovative workplace policies. We encourage central Ohio employers to collaborate with families so parents can fulfill both their parenting and work commitments.
