As part of its Ginsburg Initiative, the Center for Women in Law will host a virtual panel discussion to discuss the caregiver penalty and what legal employers can do to address and remedy the issue in their places of employment. Although advances have been made, the pandemic made clear that women continue to be primarily responsible for child and family care. The panel will discuss research and data about the caregiver penalty, what this means for the state of the legal profession, and what leaders in the profession can do to promote gender equity in the legal workplace. Approved for 1 Hour of CLE Ethics Credit.
