Shift from the Margins: Centering Black Women’s Work and Family in Policy and Practice

6:00pm - 7:00pm Online Event

About This Event

Kendra Jason spoke as part of BHM 2021

In this interactive experience, Dr. Kendra Jason, Founder of Work 4 Change, LLC, will use an active learning approach (self-reflection, investigative thought-work, various activities) to identify and address challenges of Black Women at work and home. Black women are disproportionately represented as low-wage essential workers and working caregivers, while also being mothers, wives, breadwinners, and matriarchs of the Black family. The onset of COVID-19 has exacerbated the challenges they face as they manage work and home, and policy and practices must shift to better meet the needs of this crucial group of the U.S. economy.

Participants will leave the workshop as change-agents with tools and language to better address and alleviate the unequal burden Black women face managing work and family.

Presented as part of our celebration of Black History Month.
