Location: AFL-CIO | 815 16th St. NW | Washington, D.C. 20005

Time: 11/19/19, 5:30pm - 8:00pm

In the 32 years since Heidi Hartmann founded IWPR, the organization has developed into a research powerhouse, producing groundbreaking analyses on such issues as women’s labor force participation, women’s leadership and entrepreneurship, the glass ceiling, women in green jobs and high tech fields, the status of women in the states, and access to paid leave, child care, higher education, and job training.

Please join us at a reception to celebrate IWPR’s three decades of achievements and pay tribute to the woman who made it possible, founding President Heidi Hartmann.
