Women of Color will speak out on their lived experience in a special program set for Thursday, Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. via Zoom.
Hosted by the Oakdale-Riverbank-Escalon branch of the AAUW, American Association of University Women, this Zoom session is open to all those interested.
Women, the world over, face roadblocks to success in their personal and occupational lives. The salary gap, work-life balance, and hurdle to be twice as good as anyone else are three such barriers, but for Women of Color the obstacles are even greater. They include double standards, facing microagressions, and conscious or unconscious racial bias. At the AAUW’s February meeting, they will hear the lived experience of four such Women of Color in the community: one in finance, one an English Language Intervention teacher, and two from the library realm. In order to support each other we must hear each other, noted AAUW officials. All are encouraged to come meet them and hear their stories.
