The Frontline is Female: Leading a Workforce of Women Past the PandemicPosted: 2021-03-08
The driving force in Leslie Sarauer’s work is to make an impact.

“I wanted to find an organization that really needed me,” she said. When COVID-19 arrived in Canada, that need was clear, for people across every level of seniors’ care.
She shares her purpose in common with her colleagues on the front-line of long-term care, home care and retirement homes, with women representing a full 88 percent of Extendicare’s workforce.

Extendicare moved quickly in early 2020 to secure personal protective equipment supply lines and establish protocols with public health officials to protect the people we care for. Informed by our experience in the first wave of the pandemic, we knew we had to get ahead of the virus to better ensure the safety of the residents in our homes.
