Abstract

Women always have faced unique career development challenges, and COVID-19 has only exacerbated the situation. The author offers four strategies for women to overcome these obstacles: form or participate in minority networks and support groups; identify fears that hold them back; find a mentor, sponsor or executive coach; and play to their own strengths. Organizations have responsibilities, too, to support their employees, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, and create a diverse and psychologically safe work environment.
