For years, we have been celebrating International women’s day with enthusiasm. However, this year’s Women’s Day is different than the others. We have dealt with a global pandemic. While the whole of humanity has contributed to tackling this outbreak, we would like to highlight the efforts of women leaders specifically here.

Here are the Sheroes of Pandemic:

Women in Legislation

Jacinda Ardren, Prime Minister of New Zealand announced a lockdown on March 25. This decision helped in eradicating the virus by June 6, 2020, with minimal casualties. This leadership was celebrated worldwide. Although, the virus resurfaced in the country the government did not delay in sealing the borders and quarantine the corona patients. The public was made aware of the seriousness of the pandemic. Moreover, New Zealand was the highest testing rates per capita in the world at that time, with 8,000 tests per day. 

Women leadership in legislation has shown effective measures in containing the spread of COVID-19.

Diversity in technology has always been a debating topic. The tech women leaders have enabled the companies to create better and safer products. The percentage of women in senior leadership positions grew from 21% to 24% in 2019. By 2020, 40% of US businesses were owned by women.

Women in technology are optimistic about opportunities for growth in the tech industry.

Stay at Home Mom

How can we forget these superheroes? No doubt, stay-at-home moms are indisputably the hardest roles in corporate history. This three-letter job title suffices multiple roles i.e. teacher, dictator, driver, chef, therapist, lawyer, doctor, accountant, and so on. To deliver this role all require the unlimited potential of patience, ability, and energy that range from excessive to unfair—because this role often goes unnoticed without monetary benefits or appreciation.
