In just one month, our community has experienced many sudden and unforeseen changes that have significantly impacted our daily routines.  Many businesses have closed or are working on reduced operating hours because of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) – creating uncertainty in the work environment.  The St. Louis community has come together to implement new rules, laws and policies in order to continue doing what we do best; rising to the occasion.  We at the Women’s Foundation fully support the St. Louis community and will continue to do our part in making it better.


Given our work to advance women in the workplace, we are closely monitoring the economic impact of COVID-19 so that we can continue to be a resource for women’s economic empowerment. At WFSTL, we remain focused on how we can support women through this time and post-Covid-19.

Women are being disproportionately impacted by the economic crisis caused by COVID-19. Many jobs in high-contact and service industries, which employ more women than men, have already seen significant layoffs. https://www.bizjournals.com/bizwomen/news/latest-news/2020/04/pandemic-job-cuts-taking-greater-toll-on-women.html?ana=emailafriend
