Offer: Call for Research Papers and Workshop Proposals
The Summit is a conference that will bring together feminist grassroots activists, academics and educators, women's policy researchers, NGO's, non-profits, social justice organizations, and labor, business, and government leaders committed to strengthening the economic and political power of women - as workers, business owners, caregivers, family providers, voters, and leaders. The summit will provide diverse perspectives combining academic findings on the economic status of women with action strategies for promoting equality. Participants will identify trends, challenges, and solutions from the local to the global arena, considering class, race, cultural, religious and gender realities.
The Summit conveners will consider proposals that include one of the five major summit themes: Labor; Family; Health; Well-being; Leadership; and Voter Mobilization. Summit conveners will integrate research papers and workshop proposals to provide analysis of issues and calls for grassroots action to achieve economic justice and empowerment through the prisms of race, class, age, ability, expression and opportunity.
