The latest jobs report shows that in December, 140,000 working people lost their jobs—and ALL of them were women, overwhelmingly Black and Brown. Join the Chicago Tribune’s Heidi Stevens and leaders from five Chicago organizations working in different arenas to put women on sound economic footing for a virtual panel event on February 3rd followed by smaller breakout sessions.
We’ll look ahead to what needs to be done to ensure women, and especially women of color, can not only recover, but emerge from this “shecession” stronger than before. You’ll walk away with concrete actions you can take to help change policies, strengthen safety nets, improve workplaces, keep caregivers in the workforce, and foster your own success. You do not want to miss this event!
