Together, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, the Women’s Research & Resource Center at Spelman College, and the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College, are convening leading researchers, advocates, practitioners, and policy makers for meaningful discussion. Participants and attendees will leave this day-long program with a better understanding of the complex issues underlying the social and political climate, empowered with research and resources to strengthen their fight for equity and influence.

Panels will all consider gender while focusing on: the intersectionality of race, religion, and immigration; child care and leave polices; income equality and labor markets; and health, wellbeing, violence, and safety.

This program is free and open to the public; pre-registration is required. Connect with the conference on social media with #persisttopower.
