ESG specialist took the reality of poor black women during the pandemic to Pro Criança’s Humanization Cycle


What is the social responsibility from now on?

In March, Pro Criança Cardiac received ESG specialist Juliana Kaiser, professor of Diversity and Business at UFRJ and PUC-Rio, for the Project’s Humanization Cycle. With the theme “Social Responsibility in Brazil – Challenges in the post-pandemic country”, Juliana united the issue of gender, also due to Women’s Month, with that of race and social class, her objects of study, showing, through indicators numerically, as poor black women were the most (and even more) affected in Brazil in the last two years.

The overload of this group, the complexity of caring for children and adolescents outside of school and social vulnerability were analyzed and the indicators were cross-referenced with the public served by Pro Criança Cardiac, as well as the social responsibility towards them. In addition to the overload of domestic tasks, women often had to give up their small jobs because of their children.

What does the illiteracy rate in this period mean in terms of delay in the country’s development? And, above all, asked Juliana Kaiser, what are the possible tools to combat this reality? “How should companies and civil society mobilize in this sense, given that the State has failed to promote public policies regarding access to education?” The speaker drew attention to the difficulty of this group, for example, attending classes online when schools were organized to do so, due to the lack of internet data and cell phones available in real time.

– Data on domestic violence due to confinement also shows the difference between middle-class and impoverished women, which, in Brazil, is also directly linked to color. Being confined in a 100m2 apartment is different from being confined in a 15m2 environment with more children and fewer privileges, she analyzed between the points of the conversation.

According to Juliana, the pandemic therefore increases inequality and leaves women in the storm and with completely different boats. The main objective of the lecture was to raise the question: what to do from now on?
