Women Out of Work: Rebuilding Hospitality & Culture in Hamilton Event

While many female-dominated sectors have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, women working within Hamilton’s hospitality sector have reported the highest degree of negative job impacts. This event will look to share the findings of the Women Out of Work study, and further a conversation about the opportunities that exist to help support the sector, and the women within it, as it recovers from COVID-19.
