Equity, Private Sector, Women on the Front Lines

Fast Company reports on the release of The TIME’S UP Guide to Equity and Inclusion During Crisis, which includes practical guidance for employers to meet the demands of this moment and double down on their diversity and inclusion goals.

Some of the top takeaways from the guide include:

  • Pay attention to the impact of layoff and furlough decisions on women and people of color.
  • Acknowledge the added responsibilities that caregivers have at home and co-create custom solutions to support their success.
  • Recognize that COVID-19 impacts each employee differently — and do not overlook how painful these acute experiences are for your people, especially those whose personal lives have been shaped most significantly by the pandemic.
  • Living up to company values now will have future implications on hiring the best talent, attracting discerning customers, and building each business’s resilience over the long haul.
