Is hybrid working worse for women?

Is hybrid working worse for women?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

in partnership with Deloitte

This is a digital-only ThinkIn.

By now, many of us have been involved with a hybrid working environment for a few months; indeed, it seems to be the new normal for many employers globally. And while it may have its perks, such as a reduced commute, are we ignoring the risk that more choice on where and when to work may increase inequality?

Flexible working offers greater freedom to those with caring responsibilities or disabilities to work from home – but what can we do to avoid unintended consequences of this freedom? How do we ensure that this new way of working enables rather than hinders equality?
