Initiatives

MI Tri-Share Child Care 

MI Tri-Share Child Care (Tri-Share) is an innovative approach to increasing access to high quality, affordable child care for working families, while also helping to retain talent and removing one major barrier to employment.

#KnowYourRights: Fostering Access, Rights and Equity (FARE)

In the Fall of 2021, the U.S. Department of Labor Women's Bureau awarded the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) a Fostering Access, Rights and Equity (FARE) Grant to help women workers who earn low wages understand and access their employment rights and benefits. Learn more about #KnowYourRights: Fostering Access, Rights and Equity (FARE) in Michigan.

21-Day Racial Equity Challenge

The Michigan Women's Commission (MWC) is pleased to invite you to join a 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge, created by and shared in partnership with the Michigan League for Public Policy. 

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.
