2021 Impact Report: Emerging

Impact Report

The critical nature of Women Employed’s work is more relevant than ever, as we work to emerge from a pandemic that’s had a hold on us for nearly two years; to emerge from a ‘she-cession’ that’s had alarming impacts on women—especially Black and Brown women—and their families; to emerge from workplace policies and practices that never worked for many of us.
