Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward’s upcoming Women’s Speaker Series will feature three local mothers on the panel to discuss parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“On this month’s Women of Burlington panel, we’re inviting 3 amazing Burlington moms to talk #PandemicParenting. We want to talk about how we can support one another during this difficult time, figuring out work-life balance, and how the pandemic has impacted women and mothers,” said Meed Ward on Instagram.

Last month, Meed Ward announced that the mayor’s office would be launching a monthly Women’s Speaker Series after the success of her virtual Lunch and Learn that was hosted for International Women’s Day.

“This year, I did something virtual and had some amazing, inspiring women on my show to talk about living through the pandemic because it has hit women harder than other sectors with low-paying jobs and the burden of childcare,” Meed Ward told inhalton.com‘s Khaled Iwamura in an interview.

“People were so inspired with our one-hour service virtual chat,” she said, explaining that it prompted someone to ask whether she could do these sessions more than once per year.

As a result, Meed Ward decided to go ahead with the request and confirmed that the new series will take place on a monthly basis.

The upcoming speaker series on pandemic parenting is set to take place on May 31 at noon.
