COVID-19 has directly and disproportionately wrecked the lives and livelihoods of many citizens. This pandemic has exposed many inequalities and continues to displace young people. Along with these welcomes long lasting mental health challenges that will need to be addressed. The impact of isolation, lockdown restrictions and many human losses.
The unforeseen job losses were a tragedy. The pay cuts and the unemployed searching for opportunities in a wrecked economy. Currently, leaving employees to be vulnerable. COVID-19 has exposed the lack of social protection in society. Making it very difficult for citizens to save and adjust to the economic shocks. This has potentially widened poverty.
COVID-19 is not just a public health emergency, it underlines challenges and conveys us to the deep-rooted marginalisation. The marginalised of women struggling to access opportunities and economic liberation. The conversation of digital inclusivity and the question of the world of opportunities post-COVID-19.
How do we view the world of opportunities and entrepreneurship? Could this social unrest reposition citizens to consider entrepreneurship or innovation?
In hindsight, many citizens are anxious about the outcome of tomorrow. Could the pandemic direct more citizens into entrepreneurship or is it time to consider reskilling?
Or could the rise of the pandemic be an opportunity for women to build networks with other entrepreneurs and collaborate for greater results?
Let us have a conversation about this, increase social unrest could lead to entrepreneurship being the goal?
