U.S. Chamber Foundation Newsletter

9 March 2022 Wednesday

In celebration of International Women's Day, we're excited to share top moments from our 12th Annual International Women's Day Forum: Business Powering Gender Equity, which brought together cross-sector leaders to share actionable insights on how to drive sustainable progress for women around the world.
Check out highlights from the event below and watch the recordings here.
Quotable Moments
Carolyn Cawley, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, joined Dr. Jill Tiefenthaler, CEO of the National Geographic Society, for an inspiring conversation on what leadership looks like for the first female CEO of the 133-year-old global nonprofit. See the full interview.
“I believe it is incredibly important to find opportunities to pave the way for women and BIPOC leaders and others that are historically underrepresented. At National Geographic, it is now one of our key commitments to focus on DE&I on every level of our work. It’s part of our core values and integral to our new strategic plan, NG Next. I think my appointment by the board signals we’re headed to a much more inclusive and accountable community.” - Dr. Jill Tiefenthaler, CEO of the National Geographic Society
The Labor Crisis and Getting Women Back To Work
"The pandemic has caused people to re-evaluate their own values and what they’re expecting from their employers. Employees are voting with their feet and either walking away from careers altogether or moving to places where they can have a more value-aligned quality of life." - Spring Lacy, VP, Head of Learning & Development, HR Talent & Capabilities, Prudential
Cultivating the New Generation of Trailblazers
"Achieving equity for women begins with equity for girls. It begins in childhood. Girls have brilliant ideas, they have a fantastic voice – they deserve a seat at the table, particularly when it comes to decisions that affect them.” - Janti Soeripto, President and CEO, Save the Children US
The Intersectional Experiences of Women of Color in the Workplace
“What is happening to make someone feel the need to be less than authentic? Is the space truly accepting of various perspectives or does the space truly embrace diversity? When you’re willing to pause and ask yourself those questions, you can find several things that are contributing to not fixing the person, but fixing the culture or the environment and allowing space for people to be themselves.” - Kim Jenkins, Global Head of Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Belonging, PayPal
Care 2.0: Accelerating the Adoption of Technology in the Care Space
“Caregiving wasn’t only something that happened in the home over the last couple years. In workplaces, people needed different types of engagement with their colleagues, their bosses, their employees as the environment was so unusual and stressful. We’re taking the concept of caregiving to be more universally applied in different settings where we find ourselves.” - Susan Garfield, Principal, EY
The Road to Growth
"If we limit important opportunities and services for women, we prevent women from doing what they do so well, which is giving back. If you invest in women, they are more likely to invest in the education and health of their children, more likely to give back to their wider community, and as a result, they make sure the whole nation benefits from development." - Cherie Blair, CBE, QC, Founder, Cherie Blair Foundation for Women
Global Perspectives on Women in the World
“Even before the pandemic, women were responsible for nearly three-quarters of unpaid care work, which undermines their ability to participate in paid work. They also make up a vast majority of the care workforce who have been underpaid and undervalued for far too long. Childcare, eldercare, homecare – too often – is inaccessible and unaffordable, while at the same time, care workers scramble to care for their own families even as they take care of others.” - Rachel Vogelstein, Senior Advisor, Gender Policy Council, White House
Did You Know?
The COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated existing inequities among childcare providers, about 40% of whom are people of color and the vast majority of whom are women.
The U.S. Chamber Foundation and The Education Trust recently released a report identifying opportunities for supporting working families with young children by supporting female providers of color. Read the report.
