Women’s Fund of Rhode Island Releases Working Women Report

Womens Fund of Rhode Island (WFRI) has released its Status of Working Women in Rhode Island report, which highlights challenges in Rhode Island with regard to the high number of young women of color lacking a high school diploma and high percentage of women who work part-time because they are unable to find full-time work.  Full report

WFRI will be hosting a series of community input forums on the data, collecting feedback on how Rhode Island should respond.  The feedback from these forums will inform WFRI’s grantmaking work.

WFRI is also looking for a few community organizations to host community input forums, so please contact Kelly Nevins at knevins@wfri.org for more information.
