FCSW Hosts Virtual Lunch and Learn: Covid-19 Impact Expert Panel
Florida Commission on the Status of Women is committed to providing resources and information in support of the empowerment and success of women. FCSW Lunch and Learn sessions bring together commissioners, experts in their fields, advocates, and other community members to explore key issues concerning Florida women.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all educational programming are moving on-line, offering high caliber speakers and timely, sometimes difficult conversations.
The Florida Commission on the Status of Women hosted its inaugural virtual LEAD Lunch & Learn on June 11 to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on women. Participants learned from an expert panel of Commissioners about education, healthcare, eldercare, and business as they discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted women uniquely in each of these areas, and gained knowledge from other women on how to address and overcome these challenges. Following the panel, participants were given the opportunity to share insights and stories about how COVID-19 has affected them, their families, and their communities. Nearly 150 women from across the state engaged in the virtual event when it was launched, and many more accessed the recording through the Commission’s YouTube Channel.
