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!

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.
