For the Next U.S. President

Thursday, May 12, 2016 - 4:30pm
Wellesley College Club
What should the next President of the United States—and her/his Administration—understand in order to further advance the status of women and girls, families and communities over the next four-plus years? Researchers and project directors from the Wellesley Centers for Women will offer insights, policy approaches, and recommendations on issues that can inform policy makers, practitioners, and the general public. During this dialogue, topics including child care, gender-based violence, race and immigration, and depression prevention will be addressed. “Recommended Reading” for the Next President, a special feature in the March/April issue of Women’s Review of Books, will also be highlighted.
This program is free and open to the public.
