With wage inequality impacting the ability of women – particularly women of color – to receive fair compensation for their labor, GCIR will host a webinar discussion on strategies for supporting the economic empowerment of immigrant and refugee women. Given the particular workforce complications that can arise in relation to immigration status – and the potential impact of the termination of DACA workforce authorizations on hundreds of thousands of individuals – this session will focus on entrepreneurial strategies as well as labor union efforts to improve economic opportunity.
