The Future of Women & The Future of Work
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

From women declaring #TimesUp on harassment and assault to the rise of the gig economy, the world of work is changing, and fast. Yet some things remain the same, like the fact that certain work is (and typically has been) done by women. As new models of work emerge, how can we ensure the future of work doesn’t actually keep women -- especially women of color and immigrants -- frozen in the past? This dynamic group of leaders will share their perspectives and a gameplan that ensures that as work moves forward, women advance, too.

In the Red: Wealth Inequality is a Bigger Crisis Than We Think
Limited Capacity seats available

There’s a lot of talk about income inequality, but what about *wealth* inequality? Nearly half of all single women of color have zero or negative net worth, and the median net worth of Black and Latino families is expected to fall to zero in the middle of the century. If that sounds like a crisis to you, then you’re right. So what are we doing about it? We’ve convened a group of experts who work at the many intersections of how women strive to support themselves, and together, we’ll explore what’s keeping women unwealthy and what we can do to get wealth wise.
