Megan Carannante Quoted on Efforts to Attract, Retain and Promote Women in the Workforce

Hartford Business Journal

Megan Carannante, co-chair of Pullman & Comley’s Labor, Employment Law and Employee Benefits practice, was recently quoted in a Hartford Business Journal article on growing efforts to recruit women back into the workforce.

Megan spoke about the significant impact of the recent pandemic, particularly on women’s participation in the workforce, which dropped by 2.5% from March to April of 2020.

“Unfortunately, [it] led to a lot of women leaving the workforce…They found it very difficult to balance the competing needs that they were trying to navigate with being caretakers.”

Megan noted that this dynamic was concerning for employers.

“Women are vital contributors to the workplace,” she said. “Most employers have worked hard to try to attract, retain and promote their female workforce.”
