Women’s Well-Being Index Launch & Discussion — Women’s Fund of Rhode Island

Women’s Fund of Rhode Island is releasing the newly revamped and updated Women’s Well-Being Index (WWBI) at this session.

Featured panelists are:

  • Anna Cano-Morales, Interim Vice President of External Relations at Rhode Island College.
  • Nora Crowley, Deputy Director of the RI Department of Labor & Training.
  • Weayonnoh Nelson-Davies, Executive Director, Economic Progress Institute.
  • Deb Ruggiero, former State Representative, President of DR Communications, and Host/Creator of AMAZING WOMEN.

The event will be moderated by CEO Kelly Nevins and broadcast on Facebook Live.

Until the event, we encourage you to dive into the new data – located on our website, the interactive tool provides access specific to regional, city, and statewide levels, and is aggregated for Gender and Race. Information highlighted via its tabs include Education, Economic Security, Justice, Health & Safety, Housing, and Political Empowerment. Each tab includes several comparisons on the topic to determine where there are gender and racial gaps. Policy briefs for each tab can be found at here, providing ideas about what policymakers can do to make Rhode Island a better place for women to live.
