In this special episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we explore how corporate America is responding to COVID-19 with new policies for employees caring for children and elderly relatives. S&P Global partnered with AARP to research how leave policies are evolving in the U.S. private sector as part of S&P Global’s #ChangePays initiative, which produces research about the benefits of increasing women participation in the work force. In the episode we unpack that research, which found the pace of change has accelerated rapidly amid the pandemic.
We also hear from women who are on the ground balancing childcare, virtual schooling and elder care alongside demanding careers amid the pandemic. The episode features interviews with Pamela Sutton-Wallace, an executive at New York-Presbyterian, one of the largest hospitals in the U.S.; Microsoft Corporate Vice President Rani Borkar; S&P Global Market Intelligence President Martina Cheung; and Arjuna Capital co-founder Natasha Lamb.
