The Vermont Commission on Women (VCW) starts the new legislative session with a public event examining how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts economic aspects of women’s lives, especially for women of color in our state.
VCW’s Legislative After-Dinner Coffee & Conversation event, taking place Thursday evening, January 14th from 7:00 – 8:30 PM, features a panel discussion with experts, an exploration of issues in small breakout room conversations, and a wrap up Q & A session. This virtual event is free and open to the pubic upon reservation at vtwomen.eventbrite.com.
“We’re so pleased to present this opportunity to deepen understanding of how this pandemic disproportionately impacts women, and particularly those at the intersection of gender and race, who are impacted by both sexism and racism.” said Cary Brown, VCW’s Executive Director. “The goal of our event is to inform public policy, inspire questions, and encourage conversation. We’re especially excited to be the conduit for not only for data and research, but for Vermonters to tell their personal stories about how the pandemic profoundly changed their lives, and for policy makers from their community to hear those stories.”
Panelists will include new VCW Commissioner Kiah Morris, Executive Director of Mercy Connections Lisa Falcone, and UVM Professor of Economics Stephanie Seguino.
