2012 Mother’s Day Briefing
Women and the Workforce: Challenges and Opportunities Facing Women as They Age

We are pleased to invite you to our Mother's Day Campaign briefing to coincide with the release of the 2012 Mother's Day report.

This year's report looks at how factors such as unemployment and underemployment, pay inequality, caregiving, age and gender discrimination, and education, training, and technology are impacting women age 40 and older. The report highlights existing programs that produce real results and offer innovative solutions and policy-driven recommendations to expand economic diversity and accelerate our nation's productivity.

We are pleased to be collaborating with a number of leading organizations in the areas of labor, aging, and women's issues, who have contributed the latest data and analysis on employment trends. Among our contributors are Mujeres Latinas en Action, National US India Chamber Commerce, Social Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, Wider Opportunities for Women, Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement, Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, and Easter Seals.
