2019-2020 Gender Equity Conversations

From Fall 2019 until the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled in-person events in Spring 2020, the Michigan Women’s Commission and Governor Whitmer held conversations with women around the state to hear what they believe are the most pressing issues they face. The women overwhelmingly cited economic security issues as their top concerns. Pay equity, affordable and accessible child care, and a pathway to higher paying jobs were consistently prioritized—and this was before the pandemic put a glaring spotlight on these issues. The Commission used these Gender Equity Conversations to craft our current initiatives. View the summaries from our Community Conversations.
