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.
