To give voice to American women and make progress on issues of economic security, Engage is launching a new national conversation. We will remain anchored by our key pillars and guided by our key principles.
Health issues including maternal mortality, mental health, caring for our aging parents and families, and the cost of care are top of mind for American women on a daily basis.
Success at work depends on policies that support women’s reality such as paid family leave, affordable childcare, job training, diversity and inclusion, access to capital, and pay equity.
America’s technological divide has a disproportionate impact on women. Developing infrastructure is critical to expand access to remote work, education, and telehealth. Equally important are STEM initiatives that build opportunities for women and girls to advance.
Older women in particular are facing economic fragility as they deal with health care costs, high unemployment, and a lack of preparation for retirement. COVID 19’s most dire impact has been particularly on senior communities of color.
We are dedicated to creating a movement that includes women across the political spectrum and the country. Engage seeks to unite women and not allow them to be divided along traditional political lines.
We are more alike than we are different. In an effort to keep women united around our shared mission, Engage does not discuss divisive social issues, namely reproductive rights/right to life positions and judicial nominations.
We seek to uncover new and thoughtful approaches to tackling big problems, understanding that solutions will be best found through public and private sector cooperation.
We advocate for and organize around bipartisanship as a means for effecting lasting change. No matter
who wins an election or which political party holds the majority, working together towards consensus is the only path forward.
