Creating CVs to reflect reality

As COVID-19 began its spread, parents from academia took on a variety of new or expanded roles: daycare provider, tutor, and more. At work, they managed new responsibilities while current duties grew at a rapid pace. Currently, there is no room for any of this work on the traditional curriculum vitae, or CV, which is often used for academic review and promotion. But what if CVs better reflected the reality of their work, even documenting the disruptions caused by the pandemic – particularly for women who have shouldered a great burden both at work and home?
