When I found WILD, I found 'la horma de mi zapato' — a support for my life — emotionally, professionally and as an activist. This is especially important for those of us who find ourselves in this country, far away from our families. WILD has helped me to be a part of an immense group of women workers and get involved in the community.
— Isabel Lopez, MassCOSH
The Women's Institute for Leadership Development works to strengthen the number, influence and diversity of women at all levels of leadership in the Massachusetts labor movement and beyond.
What unites the women of WILD? Our commitment to:
- fight for economic justice;
- promote grassroots activism; and
- challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and all forms of oppression.
We provide education, training and support to help women become ever more effective organizers and leaders: in their unions and the labor movement as a whole; in the political arena and within their communities.
