Belinda Schwartz, Herrick partner and Real Estate Department chair, moderated a panel covered by the Commercial Observer. In the panel, titled "Analyzing the Numbers: Programs Fueling Net Job Gains to Restore a Pre-pandemic Workforce," Belinda said, "As we all know, the COVID-19 recession has been referred to as a shecession," pointing to statistics of higher unemployment rates among women and working mothers.
