CSI Catalyst Webinar

October 6, 2020 | 10:00am - 11:30am

Under the current context of COVID-19, the purpose of this webinar is to deepen the understanding of issues and challenges faced by front-line (most often women) workers in healthcare, retail and banking. In addition, wages paid to these front-line workers are often very low, not reflecting the dangers they face. Socioeconomic and equity issues arise. Through this panel discussion, we hope to mobilize academic knowledge and research, as well as share best practices and distill insights from leading industry practitioners.
