Women in Economics Forum

Date: October 22, 2019

EPI’s expert team of women economists discussed pertinent issues facing workers and their families, including the minimum wage, paid sick leave, child care, and mandatory arbitration which disproportionately impact women and communities of color.

Attendees learned more about EPI’s work and met some of our dynamic staff who are helping to fuel the progressive economics movement.
