This event is the second in a series of conversations brought to you by the Community Foundation’s Women & Girls Funds Task Force on Public Policy.
In 2017, the Community Foundation's four Women & Girls Funds commissioned a Report on the Status of Women & Girls in Eastern Connecticut. It revealed some bright spots but shined a light on many barriers and inequities that persist for women and girls, especially for women and girls of color.
In addition to grantmaking and community leadership, we knew we had to focus on advocacy and awareness building to achieve real change. To that end, the Women & Girls Funds Task Force on Public Policy was established in 2018. The Community Foundation is committed to responding to the needs and opportunities presented in the report and to championing equity for all.
