YWCA with MOHAI History Cafe:  Black Women’s Legacy in Washington’s Workforce

Wednesday, September 18, 2019
6:30 – 8:30 pm

Throughout our nation’s history, Black women have faced significant disparities in wages and employment outcomes despite consistently having the highest levels of participation among all women in the workforce.

Join YWCA for a panel discussion about the experiences of underrepresented women of color in today’s workplace—and how Washington can take the lead in creating a new, truly inclusive vision.

We’ll feature the stories of inspiring Black women who contributed to a stronger regional economy at a time when African American populations were denied the opportunity to participate freely and fully in the workforce.

Arrive early or stay after the panel to take part in a collaborative art installation!

For disability accommodations, please contact programs@mohai.org two weeks prior to the event.

Cost: Free
