#WomenProgress: People, Power, and Policy

International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 613
1:00 - 9:00 PM EDT

Please join us for a conversation about strategies to promote women’s equality and enable all women – particularly women from diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds living in the South (or the Southern United States) – to thrive economically.

We will come together to discuss, strategize, and organize around a host of policy priorities that impact all women’s lives. Our goal is to connect the dots on issues such as equal pay; access to abortion and reproductive health care and rights; child care; paid leave and paid sick days; and sexual harassment. We hope participants leave this discussion better positioned to work collaboratively to create impactful change that is responsive to women’s diverse realities and experiences.

Please bring your unique perspective to join this important conversation about strategies for the future.

Travel scholarships are being provided for a limited number of need-based and youth participants to help defray costs. If you are in need of financial assistance and/or a young person who needs help with travel costs, please fill out this form.

All decisions will be made and scholarship recipients notified via email.
