This program is hosted by our partner, Asset Funders Network (AFN), who has extended an invitation to PNY members.
In honor of International Women’s Day, please join the Asset Funders Network, Economic Opportunity Funders and EITC Funders Network, to learn about how we can build a gender-equitable economy in which women and their families can strive, thrive, and reach their full potential.
Over the past year, the Women in the Economy* project at the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program has been in deep conversations with working women across the U.S. to gain their insights about the causes of their economic insecurity, what they see as the most promising solutions, and their vision for a gender-equitable economy. The project included in-depth, one-on-one interviews and a national survey to identify challenges and solutions prioritized by women who hold many, intersecting identities–race and ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, immigration status, experience with incarceration, physical and economic abuse, and other factors that contribute to their economic marginalization.
The webinar will lift up interview and survey findings, and engage participants in a discussion about policy, program, and market-based solutions.
