Women Employed is smart, focused, and effective, and is making a real difference particularly in the lives of low-wage working women
WE has truly been an inspiration ever since I was first introduced to the organization in 2012 by another single mom/ friend! Over the past couple of years, I have eagerly shared WE's info & messages concerning wage equality, support for the Non-Traditional student, availability & the options surrounding financial aid, and the importance of women voting. I urge others (like us) to do the same!
I serve on the marketing committee for Women Employed and am truly honored to be a part of this great mission. WE is working hard to advance the lives of all women, and especially women working in low-wage jobs. It takes a clear vision of a better future, smart leadership, and a consistent, fresh message to remain relevant in a saturated marketplace. WE has all of these - as well as the history and savvy to rise above the fray and remain a critically important advocate for this segment of the workforce.
Very proud to be a part of this amazing organization that focuses on building the best workplace and work environment for women. Excited to share my marketing and communications expertise with everyone going forward!
I've been a member of Women Employed for over 7 years and have contributed to their Marketing Committee for most of that time. Women Employed is a highly effective organization focused on equal opportunity in employment and education for women. The staff are very professional and they are quite efficient and effective in their efforts. Their efforts have improved the working conditions for women for over 40 years--they deserve the highest marks
Fabulous organization that works to improve the opportunities and working conditions for low-wage working women!
Women Employed tackles the root causes of the issues facing women today. By mobilizing women to make a difference in the policies that impact all women's ability to attain a high quality, affordable education and advance in their careers, Women Employed is laying the groundwork for generations to come. On behalf of my own two little girls, I'm incredibly grateful for the work Women Employed engages in every day!
From helping make sexual harassment illegal in the 70s to helping pass the Pregnancy Fairness Act just four months ago, WE does not settle! It's laser focus on working women's issues is why I have been volunteering with WE for nearly 10 years.
I am a former Board member of Women Employed and can testify to the dedication, expertise, and compassion that Women Employed brings to its mission of serving working women. The lives of women nationwide have been improved because of Women Employed's efforts. From strengthening EEO enforcement to advocating for educational opportunities to providing sound, real-world advice to women on legal and career issues, Women Employed is a champion for women. And by benefiting women, WE benefits families and society as a whole.
I am proud to have been a volunteer, on the board and now a supporter as a general member of the public. Hooray for Women Employed!
From my perspective as a volunteer member of the WE Advocacy Council, Women Employed is an organization filled with people who are deeply committed to their mission and values -- to diligently advocate on behalf of women in low-wage employment to improve labor conditions and opportunities. I always feel energized and more informed after WE events. The organization has also proven nimble over the years, adapting its central issues to meet the changing needs of women in the low-wage sector in order to address the social, political, and economic realities of the historical moment (although of course, many of the same issues persist, as well).
