Why OWL

OWL is celebrating 35 years serving as the voice for the nation’s estimated 78 million 40+ who make up almost one quarter of the population.  As an OWL Champion, you demonstrate a deep commitment to improving the economic security and quality of life for these women.  You also support an organization known and respected for the quality and integrity of its work and its nonpartisan, collaborative and solution-oriented approach.

OWL’s history of successful advocacy:

• OWL initiated a successful advocacy and education campaign that resulted in the passage of COBRA.
• OWL was the first, and for a long time, the sole voice against using age rating in health care in the debate over ACA provisions.
• OWL drafted model legislation to fight violence and financial abuse against women, which was introduced by Rep. Maloney and Sen. Durbin.
• OWL fought for passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009.
• A past Mother’s Day Report on caregiving prompted Newsweek to run a cover story on the topic.
• OWL’s intergenerational Social Security Matters campaign, funded by the Ford Foundation, exceeded its goals.
• Additional information on the range of issues on which we engage is here

Policy makers and influencers routinely seek OWL’s expertise and acknowledge its work:

• OWL’s executive director has been extended a complimentary invitation to join the American Medical Women’s Association; she will serve on the advocacy committee.
• OWL was one of a select group that took part in the initial White House roundtable on the White House Conference on Aging and the July 13 Conference itself.
• OWL was one of a handful of groups invited to a small congressional reception celebrating the Affordable Care Act in recognition of our work around the ACA.
• OWL was one of a few women’s groups invited to the recent day-long State Department event U.S.-China Women’s Leadership Exchange and Dialogue.
• As part of our 2015 Mother’s Day event, the White House offered a special tour for our board and business women being honored. 

Collaboration

We know that collaboration is a critical part of any successful effort, which is why we work with a broad range of organizations, including the Strengthen Social Security Coalition, Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer’s Disease (LEAD), the National Council of Women’s Organizations, the National Academy of Social Insurance, Independent Sector, the National Committee on Pay Equity, the National Women’s History Museum, the STOP Obesity Alliance, and the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations.

Annual Mother’s Day Reports and Hill Briefings

OWL’s signature Mother’s Day reports always focus on one issue of particular importance to our demographic. They are known for their readability – we translate technical language for a broad audience, and we work hard to uncover the stories hidden in the data.

Our reports are well-known for the quality of research, thorough policy recommendations for the private and public sectors, and examples of best practices. Our reports also reflect our policy of spending only 20% of our time defining problems, and 80% on identifying solutions.

Along with OWL’s reports, the attendant briefings have always been well-attended by Hill and administration staff, media, and private and public sector leadership.
