Inaugural Conference on “ Women and Work ”

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Center for Worker Education at City College is presenting its first conference on "Women and Work" on March 26-27.

Also conceived as an occasion to memorialize women workers lost on September 11, the conference will highlight scholarship about women in the workplace and showcase the experiences of working women who are CUNY students.

The conference will also mark the establishment of the Women and Work Research Project, which will document the contemporary urban workforce and facilitate the publication of relevant books and articles. Among the nearly two dozen presentations planned are ones on "Managing Health, Fertility, and Stress," "Through the Glass Ceiling: Upward Mobility After Graduation," "Immigration and Women Workers," and "Racism and Inequity on the Job." A panel on "The Impact of September 11 and War on Women Workers" is also scheduled.

For more information, contact Prof. Barbara Omolade at the Center: or 212-925-6625.
