Breaking Down Barriers and Empowering Women of Color
brochure: breaking down barriers

Women of color will make up 53 percent of the population by 2050, which makes closing the racial gap key to creating a society and workforce that will sustain U.S. competitiveness. This thought-provoking and diverse panel will discuss how women of color are shifting the dynamic in six critical areas: economic security, the wage gap, health, educational attainment, political leadership, and entrepreneurship.
