On this week’s 51%, we wrap our series on women in business. Harvard economist Claudia Goldin explains how women persisted in the job market during the coronavirus pandemic, and Beth Miller Guthier with Capital District WERC shares her tips for those needing to start over. We also take a look at the Poetry Out Loud National Finals, and speak with finalist Pamela White about her love of recitation.

Guests: Claudia Goldin, Henry Lee Professor of Economics at Harvard University; Elizabeth Miller Guthier, executive director of Capital District Women’s Employment & Resource Center; and Pamela White, Bethlehem High School student and New York Champion for Poetry Out Loud

You can watch the Poetry Out Loud National Finals here on June 5 starting at 7 p.m. ET.
