The French government, in a bid to improve working conditions for women, has commissioned a study to reconcile “the professional and family time of parents” and suggest changes to parental leave policies amid the country’s shift to remote work.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, parents –and women in particular — have felt the burden of working at home while simultaneously overseeing their children’s remote education.

The government on March 4 announced that it was appointing Christel Heydemann, president of Schneider Electric France, and Julien Damon, a sociologist, to improve “the question of parenthood in business” as part of the study, Dossier Familial reported.

The two experts will submit their report by Sept. 1 ,2021, the report said.
