The COVID-19 pandemic has had an outsize impact on women in the workforce, resulting in what has been dubbed a “She-cession.” On this week’s episode, we’re joined by Heidi Ganahl, Founder of Camp Bow Wow and SheFactor.She is also a fellow board member of CSI, and a CU regent, as well as Nicole Riehl, President and CEO of Executives Partnering to Invest in Children (EPIC). EPIC is the business community’s nonpartisan voice for early childhood care and education, and has recently launched a new initiative that aims to help solve the child care issue.
The two join Earl Wright, our Host and Chairman to discuss entrepreneurship, the rate of women leaving the workforce, early childhood education, motherhood and much more. A robust economy and a full workforce does not happen without vigorous participation from women, and this episode provides insights into what has led us here, and offers recommendations on how we rectify the situation.
