WILD Summer Institute 2024

In the years since WILD was founded, women have made a lot of progress in the workplace and in the labor movement. But we still have a long way to go. And recently, we seem to be moving backward, as conservative forces have slashed away at our reproductive rights, affirmative action, and other rights we had fought so hard for and thought we had won for good.

Join us in this one-day conference to share ideas and create an agenda for working women to win back our rights and keep moving forward.

WILD Instituto de Verano 2024

En los años transcurridos desde que se fundó WILD, las mujeres han logrado muchos avances en el lugar de trabajo y en el movimiento laboral. Pero nosotras aún tenemos un largo camino por seguir. Y recientemente, parece que estamos retrocediendo, a medida que las fuerzas conservadoras han recortado nuestros derechos reproductivos, la acción afirmativa y otros derechos por los que habíamos luchado tan arduamente y que pensábamos que habíamos ganado para siempre.

Únase a nosotras en esta conferencia de un día para compartir ideas y crear una agenda para que las mujeres trabajadoras recuperemos nuestros derechos y sigamos avanzando.

Junte-se a nós nesta conferência de um dia para compartilhar ideias e criar uma agenda para que as mulheres trabalhadoras reconquistem os nossos direitos e sigam em frente.
