As the year draws to a close, I am so inspired by our community's passion and generosity throughout 2021. Thanks to you, we've created real change to ensure all women in Western New York have the opportunity to earn, learn, and lead.
This year, we secured $2 million in extra child care subsidy dollars for Erie County.
We saw 12 employers with 3,500 employees invest in gender equity through our ALL IN initiative.
And our influence, leadership, and data led to $4 billion in child care funds distributed to working parents and providers across New York State.
YOU are part of this critical movement of and for women!
But while our impact has been great, the need is greater. Gender equity is not inevitable, but it is possible when we join together.
Together, we can imagine a future that is more inclusive for everyone.
Thank you for your continued support as we move into 2022. Here's to a safe, healthy, and equitable New Year!
