On June 30th, AFN presented an Expert Insights briefing on what it takes to center women of color in the relief, recovery, and rebuild plans for the current health and economic crisis and beyond.
In this webinar, you’ll hear highlights from Dominique Derbigny, deputy director of Closing the Women’s Wealth Gap (CWWG) and author of the new report, On the Margins: Economic Security for Women of Color through the Coronavirus Crisis and Beyond.
Learn why women of color are suffering severely from the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis, opportunities to advance gender economic equity in near-term recovery efforts, and possible strategies to prevent wealth extraction and foster long-term economic security for women of color.
How have longstanding inequities put women of color in a precarious position during the COV-19 public health and economic crisis?
Given the unacceptably disparate impacts on women of color, what can be done in the near-term and long-term to safeguard their economic well-being?
This high-level briefing addresses these questions and will provide you with:
- An overview of the root causes of financial insecurity for women of color.
- An analysis of recent COVID-19 relief packages and their implications for women of color.
- A list of opportunities for long-term policy reform that could bolster financial security for women of color through this crisis and beyond.
