Virtual Program | Women + Power: ECONOMIC POWER


When women work we are still faced with exclusion. Whether it’s in pay, advancement, C-suite representation, opportunity, or funding. Is this status quo surmountable? What will it take to have equal empowerment, compensation, and resources across all genders in the workplace? Join the Ms. Foundation for Women and Brooklyn Historical Society for a conversation with Sallie Krawcheck, founder and CEO of Ellevest and one of the most powerful women to have worked on Wall Street, and Teresa C. Younger, president and CEO of the Ms. Foundation, about the vast gains that still need to be made in the name of economic power. Moderated by Tsedale Melaku, author of You Don’t Look Like A Lawyer: Black Women and Systemic Gendered Racism.

This program is presented as part of the series Women + Power: 100 Years After the 19th Amendment, which looks at the relationship between gender, power, and the ongoing work toward equality in the century since a landmark movement.
