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).

Women Employed represents my values through its mission and dedication to issues that affect low-income women. They have a strong team, an incredible history of achievements, and continue to make great strides in bolstering the higher education and financial stability if this population. I'm proud to volunteer with WE!

Women Employed is by far one of the best run and most effective non-profit organizations I have ever worked with. Lead by the dynamic and focused Anne Ladky, Women Employed excels at mobilizing people and organizations to expand educational and employment opportunities for America's working women. Women Employed understands that people need stability and support as they work to create economic opportunities for themselves and their families. WE works on the advocacy level to increase the National Minimum Wage, develop Educational Bridge Programs and continued commitment from the state of Illinois for need based Tuition Assistance programs. It has been a pleasure to serve on its board these past several years.

I first heard of this organization through a work colleague. I attended an event and was immediately impressed with the women involved and their dedication to each other, the organization and the issues impacting women of all backgrounds. The knowledge-base and welcoming attitude of those who make this organization run made me immediately interested in playing a larger role - I hope that my schedule will allow for it in the near future!

I've been involved with Women Employed since the early 90s. This organization has never wavered from its commitment to making life better for working women. Over all these years Women Employed has consistently retained the most intelligent, hardest working, most thoughtful and passionate staff of any I've known. They've accomplished so much and continue to work hard.

I learned of this organization through a close friend who works for the organization, and has told me a lot about what its goals. Through this connection I have come to respect the great work that this group has done and continues to do in promoting women's equality in the workplace. I especially appreciate what this organization stands for as a woman working in a predominately male career who has seen the challenges women face in the workforce.

I have been involved with Women Employed since the '80s. The organization has never let up on it focus on working women, women who are trying to get into the workplace, and women who are underpaid in the workplace. The organization has exercised energetic advocacy, both on the executive level and legislatively, and both federally and at the state level. I can't imagine how they could do a better job.

I have worked with Women Employed since the early 1990's as a volunteer, former training consultant and former board member and every interaction I have had with this organization has confirmed my belief in them as a stellar organization that for almost 40 years has worked passionately and steadfastly to improve the lives of working women and their families. They have consistently challenged themselves to be more responsive to their clients.

The Best organization that ever happened to me and the working women of Chicago as well as the nation. OK, I'll admit it, I joined in 1973. I was seeing the inequality of the workplace and needed to do something. While working as a bureaucrat I had more rights and freedoms than many other working women, yet I was only one of the two "professionally" graded female employees in my agency. Women Employed helped me find my voice and I was able to work to improve my field as well as other fields. Previous reviews are correct, Women Employed also helped me find some life long friends. I am forever grateful for both.
