Registration is now open for

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 backwards, as conservative forces have slashed away at our reproductive rights, at affirmative action, and at 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.

Nos anos desde a fundação da WILD, as mulheres fizeram muitos progressos no local de trabalho e no movimento trabalhista. Mas ainda temos um longo caminho a percorrer. E, recentemente, parecemos estar a retroceder, à medida que as forças conservadoras reduziram os nossos direitos reprodutivos, a acção afirmativa e outros direitos pelos quais lutámos tanto e pensávamos que tínhamos conquistado para sempre.

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.

The Summer Institute is WILD's signature program.

Every year in June, it brings together over 100 women from unions and and social and economic justice community organizations across Massachusetts  for a weekend of leadership development and fun. The Institute includes skills training, introductory and advanced leadership workshops, an anti-oppression workshop, topic-based plenaries and caucuses.  

A full-day childcare program allows mothers to fully participate.  

Since we set up the weekend with interpretation in Spanish and Portuguese, we have women from immigrant organizations and union women who don’t have access to union training programs because of the language barrier.  Women also come from our partner organizations such as MassCOSH and Jobs with Justice.  

Many women come back year after year.

2019 WILD Summer Institute

With the theme, "Using Our Voices, Building Our Power", the  WILD 2019 Summer Institute was held June 21, 22 and 23 at Worcester State University.

Our 2019 Summer Institute was one of our most successful ever. Over 130 women attended, from close to 20 different unions and several non-profit organizations, workers centers, and community groups. 

There were workshops in English, Spanish and Portuguese. In addition to Leadership Development (introductory and advanced), workshops included "Public Speaking: Speaking Up! Speaking Out!", "Internal Organizing ion thee Workplace", "Bullying and Sexual Harassment", "Working Women Build Power", "Developing an Effective Communications Strategy", Organizing for the Common Good", and "Labor, Trafficking and Immigration in the Global Economy".  Excellent trilingual interpretation was provided by Mass Translations.

Inspiration and food for thought were given by our invited speakers, Kim Marshall from UNITE HERE Local 26 (Marriott striker), Shauna Manning from CSU/MTA at UMass Boston and MTA President Merrie Najimy.

The Saturday evening program included reports from the caucuses and a wonderful open mic session that showcased the many talents of our participants, followed by a rocking dance party.
