About The Benefits Gender Gap Event:
The statistics are shocking; since the COVID-19 pandemic began, more than two million women have left the workforce. Retaining women in the workforce and supporting women as they re-enter their careers is a priority for many employers.
Companies are in a unique position to reduce turnover, hire for the skill sets they need, and ensure women’s progress in the workplace isn’t set back an entire generation. To support these retention and return-to-work efforts, leading employee benefits experts across mental, fertility and financial wellbeing sectors have teamed up and are taking action.
In recognition of International Women’s Day in March 2021, workplace benefits leaders from Spring Health, Maven, and LearnLux teamed up for a special event, The Benefits Gender Gap: Elevate Your Total Rewards to Empower Women in Your Workforce, moderated by The Corporate Doula. The virtual event united experts in employee experience on March 10 at 4:30pm to answer an important question; "How can employers leverage new benefits to re-establish themselves as an inclusive, women-friendly workplace during these challenging times?"
Event panelists include an expert lineup of women in benefits across a wide range of wellbeing themes, including:
- Averjill Rookwood, Doula/Benefits Strategist and Founder @ The Corporate Doula which offers doula care and family benefit strategy services to modern families and their employers.
- Sonia Millsom, Chief Commercial Officer @ Maven Clinic, a benefits provider that supports women and families across fertility, maternity, and pediatrics
- Debbie Markowitz, Chief Financial Officer @ Spring Health, a company on a mission to eliminate barriers to mental health
- Rebecca Liebman, Chief Executive Officer @ LearnLux, a digital + human provider of financial wellbeing for the modern workplace.
The Benefits Gender Gap event was free and open to all HR and Benefits professionals and consultants at companies that are making workforce benefits equity a priority. Attendees left the live event with knowledge around the unique challenges that women in the workforce are facing in 2021, why traditional total rewards strategies are now falling short, and how to achieve benefits equity and drive engagement.
“Before the pandemic hit, many employers were taking big steps toward fostering an inclusive workplace. Today, those needs have changed dramatically,” says Rebecca Liebman, CEO of LearnLux. “It’s time for benefits leaders to rethink their total rewards strategy and strive for benefits equity to empower women to come back to work. The Benefits Gender Gap was truly a can’t-miss conversation with actionable insights and next steps for all attendees.”
