Women Employed salutes retiring Executive Director Anne Ladky for her 40 years of ground-breaking advocacy for working women.

Under Anne’s leadership, Women Employed has changed the lives of millions of working women—breaking down barriers to good jobs, winning protections against sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination, and expanding equal pay family-friendly workplace policies. Today, we are vigorously defending our historic gains and breaking new ground to improve the quality of low-paying jobs and enable more women to achieve their aspirations through education and training.

Join women leaders from business and civic life—including incoming President and CEO Iliana A. Moraas we toast Anne and WE’s record of success and look to the future.
