Senator Will Speak at New England Women’s Policy Conference at UMass Boston

Senator Elizabeth Warren will take the stage at the New England Women’s Policy Conference on Friday at 2:30 p.m. in UMass Boston's Campus Center Ballroom, speaking to students, academics, activists and women leaders less than two weeks after the election. She will discuss the importance of organizing and working together, and hear about the efforts of UMass Boston’s Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy and the work of women politicians, policymakers, private sector and nonprofit leaders, and grassroots activists throughout New England.

Nearly 400 women from across New England will attend the conference to discuss policy solutions that address inequality and help to close the wealth gap. Participants will plan state and regional strategies to advance policies that can increase economic security for all women and their families, with a particular focus on low-wage workers and other vulnerable groups. The conference will highlight the theme “Expanding Opportunity and Building Equality for Women and Girls of Color.”

The conference is hosted by the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at UMass Boston’s McCormack Graduate School. Register here.
