Women have been distinctly impacted by our pandemic reality. Traditionally the wearers of many hats, attempting to manage the pandemic-wrought strain on our capacity has forced many women to make compromises, and our businesses, careers and wellness have taken the hardest hits. To emerge from our COVID conditions in the best possible way, women have to hone a new skill that does not come naturally to many of us: we need to learn how to ask. First ask ourselves what we need to manage through the complexities of our times, and then ask others for the support, flexibility and care that we are naturally inclined to give. Happy IWD to all – we WILL make it through!
