Our Vision for the Future

An Agenda for Women and Families

We must ensure that the concerns of women and their families remain at the forefront of our national agenda. With more women than ever now serving in the U.S. Senate and strong progressive candidates serving in both chambers, we must make sure that the champions for women and families that you put into office take action to support fair pay, access to health care, and expanded educational opportunities for all women. There is still much work to be done to ensure action on a strong agenda for women.

Dialogue of Change

Lisa Barrow, Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, recently spoke at a Women Employed event that brought together women leaders to discuss the importance of postsecondary education for working women. Barrow's research focuses on the issues that affect an individual’s ability to attain a postsecondary education and the impact that has on the labor market.

WE Can Do It!

WE Partied With a Purpose!

WE's Advocacy Council brought together 150 activists for an evening of networking, fun, and change for working women! This year's event at Chicago hotspot Carnivale was a great success--the room buzzed with the energy of so many engaged and dedicated individuals.
