Activism Series: Women Employed

  • Women & Children First Bookstore 5233 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60640 United States

For each meeting of our Activism Series, we showcase specific local social justice organizations. Representatives from the organizations give a presentation detailing their mission, followed by a Q&A and an action plan of how attendees can get involved. In July, we'll be joined by Mary Kay Devine, Amanda Collins, and Aisa Ismail from Women Employed. 

Women Employed is a nonprofit advocacy organization based in Chicago. Founded in 1973, Women Employed's mission is to improve women's economic status and remove barriers to economic equity. They promote fair workplace practices, increase access to training and education, and provide women with tools and information to move into careers paying family-supporting wages. Join us for a conversation about the tremendous advances so many women have made over the past four decades and the work that remains to ensure that: All women are treated fairly in the workplace, are able to attain the skills they need for the jobs they want, and are respected for the work they do.
