COVID-19: for unprecedented times private sector extraordinary measures
Wednesday 15 April | 10:00 a.m. EST
COVID-19 is disrupting businesses across the globe in unprecedented ways. It is not only disrupting global supply chains, consumer behavior, and modes of production but also the way we work. Employees, contractors, suppliers and businesses face unfamiliar challenges with imposed lockdowns, quarantines, social distancing measures, school closures, lack of childcare options, business closures and mandated home-based work.
This webinar, hosted by UNDP’s Business for Gender Equality Programme, Business Call to Action and the Connecting Business initiative, in partnership with the International Finance Corporation, provided an opportunity participants to discuss the challenges and measures for companies to protect their employees and supply chains and ensure their well-being in these times of distress.
