Board Member
Current

Women’s workforce participation leveled off in the 1990s, as did men’s household contributions. Only 4% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women and the face of American poverty is still a mother. WorkLife Law seeks to jump-start the stalled gender revolution by focusing, at any given time, on a few initiatives that hold the promise of producing concrete social or institutional change within a three- to-five year time frame.
