July 14, 2021 Program Meeting Topic:
America's First Women's Recession
presented by Chabeli Corrazana
The coronavirus pandemic triggered the first recession in U.S. history that has affected women more than men, erasing a decade of progress in a matter of three months. In the year since, the "shecession," as it's been called, has sparked a national conversation about the caregiving roles that many women take on, the nation's ailing childcare industry and the lack of protections for women in the workforce. It's a moment of opportunity–experts say the lessons from the pandemic can help chart a new course for working women.
Chabeli Carrazana is the economy reporter at The 19th, where she covers the intersection of economic policy and gender, as well as labor issues. She is a Livingston Award finalist for her work tracking the country's first women's recession. Previously, Chabeli was a business reporter in Florida covering low-income workers. She has covered the tourism industry for the Miami Herald and the space industry for the Orlando Sentinel. Chabeli graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida and lives in Orlando.
