Join Us For Our October Discussion Panel:
Based on the results of our 2021 Summit, W+GRA seeks to support new or ongoing research efforts whose goals align with our programmatic priority to highlight the issues that women and girls face in the workforce as a result of, or exacerbated by, COVID-19’s impact on the economy and society.
Issues may cover a variety of areas, such as the exposure of gender-biased employment practices during COVID; the disproportionate burden that the pandemic placed on single mothers; and the relationship between employment and housing security; the over-representation of women of color in low-wage jobs, particularly front-line workers, and their increased exposure to the virus; the lack of affordable childcare for working mothers.
From October 1-15, 2021, W+GRA will accept proposals for funding in the amount of $1,000.00 - $5,000.00 for projects that focus on one or both of the following:
- Supporting an ongoing research project or a new research project that addresses the intersectional nature of the problem along the lines of race, class, gender, age, ability, immigrant status, language, location, access to helpful resources, and income.
- Tangible projects that will support the work of the W+GRA such as conference presentations, workshops, research papers, training, or programs that address the "she-cession" and women missing from the workplace.
