“I volunteer with Women Employed (WE) because all women deserve fair and respectful workplaces and economic justice. Volunteering with WE has given me concrete ways to use my voice and privilege to advance equity and opportunity, and connected me to a dedicated group of people who are equally excited about the work!”
