“Building a female future of childcare and work,” presented by Sequoia Owen, YWCA USA Director of Member Services
“SUNY Cortland’s Women’s History Month theme for 2022 is: “Providing healing, promoting health.” The programming for this year’s celebrations recognizes the role of women in developing and leading wellness, advocacy, and social justice efforts across the globe.
Through March, SUNY Cortland will showcase scholarship, activism, and creative projects developed by the university’s Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies minors and host national leaders in anti-racism, gender equity, and reproductive justice.
Sequoia Owen, director of Member Services YWCA USA, will discuss findings and recommendations from “America’s recovery from the 2020 ‘Shecession’: Building a female future of childcare and work,” a report from the YWCA that details the devastating impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on women, most especially women of color. Her talk will outline a future of well-paying, stable jobs and comprehensive childcare solutions for women and families.”
