It's no secret that women face unique challenges returning to work after a long break. It's not easy to pick up a career where you left off and expect things to fall into place. The limited number of jobs available can make it difficult to say no to opportunities that could help boost your career. Still, at the same time, there is an overwhelming amount of work-life balance legislation in place, which makes it difficult for women to take control of their careers truly. Women are primarily made responsible for household and child care. This responsibility has a long-term impact on a women's career progression and is even the reason why women significantly under-participate in the workforce. This imbalance is worsened by social norms and economic realities that penalize women for being educated or having children, which leads to lower earnings over their lifetime.
Gig economy companies are hiring and becoming synonymous with disruption. The gig economy is providing opportunities for a woman to balance their required responsibilities. Many are overcoming traditional gender barriers to enter this new economy, yet some lag behind their male counterparts in career advancement and earnings. At the same time, many companies are aggressively promoting female entrepreneurship to boost growth and bring attention to their brands.
