It has been widely reported that women in the workplace have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Globally, women’s job losses due to covid-19 are 1.8X greater than men.

In an effort to address part of this problem and to provide more of an opportunity for women, LinkedIn has unlocked FREE and exclusive marketing courses in celebration of International Women’s Day. They are available until 21st March 2021 which means you have got a week left to make use of them.

The courses provide lessons in business leadership, planning for family leave, and strategies to help women progress in their professional careers.

LinkedIn has also made a course on ‘Becoming a Male Ally at Work’ available to help men get a better understanding of gender stereotypes.

LinkedIn has said:

“The biases and barriers holding back women from their fair share of marketing leadership positions are sturdily entrenched, but not unbreakable. We hope that the courses above can play a role in helping your organization make strides toward greater opportunity and equality for all women marketers this year.”
