"The Highs & Lows of the COVID-19 Pandemic for Working Parents and the Implications for the Future of Work"

The stay-at-home orders associated with the COVID-19 pandemic left many employees teleworking from home and increased the amount of unpaid care work within the home. Such disruptions have the potential to upend the gendered distribution of labor within the home and influence job productivity and satisfaction, particularly for dual-career families. To investigate the extent of change in the gendered distribution of labor and its impact on job productivity and satisfaction, we measured self-reported and partner-perceived contributions to household labor before and during the pandemic among people in cohabiting, opposite-sex partnerships in the U.S.

Sevincgul (Sev) Ulu is an assistant professor in the Marketing Department at NJCU and a research fellow at Center for Women in Business, Rutgers Business School. 

This will be a virtual seminar via Zoom.
