Re-thinking leadership through a gender lens | My Confidence Matters

My Confidence Matters report

In March 2020, working life as we knew it radically changed.

The Covid-19 pandemic created a new, completely unplanned, working paradigm for us all.  As the pandemic continues and the economic situation develops, the progress made towards economic gender parity in recent years (which was already 257 years away in 2019) is now seriously at risk.

In association with Rubica and People Management magazine, My Confidence Matters conducted a survey during July-October 2020 with over 1,250 corporate employees who were working remotely, as well as interviews with HR directors, senior leaders and gender diversity experts.

They found that despite the introduction of universal remote working, it is far from being the work balance ‘holy grail’ that has been so long sought after. The Covid-19 working experience for many has been a game of two halves. Although disabling from a work and wellbeing perspective for some, it has been counterbalanced with a sharp increase in management empathy.
