#AskHer Series: Ai-jen Poo and Fatima Goss Graves

On August 27th we were joined by Ai-jen Poo, co-founder and Executive Director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance and Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center. Moderated by The Women’s Foundation’s Program Officer Claudia Williams, we discussed what policymakers and philanthropy can do to advance the care workforce and respond to their needs during the pandemic. We also discussed the role and value of their respective organizations, the ways in which philanthropy needs to change, and why centering women in the care workforce is so important.
