NOW - NYC: Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling and Primary Vote Tomorrow!

Pressuring Corporate Giants for Equality: NOW-NYC Hosts Martha Burk

Membership Meeting & Program: Thursday, September 17, 6:30 pm
Martha Burk, author of Cult of Power—Sex Discrimination in Corporate America and Money Editor for Ms. Magazine talks about taking on the giants. Though women have made many cracks in it, the glass ceiling is still in place and women face a host of obstacles in climbing the corporate ladder--including care-giving and pregnancy discrimination, harassment, and pay inequity. Corporations have the opportunity to set a new agenda and impact millions of workers by instituting policies that forcefully combat discrimination and help advance women in the workplace. 

Held at the NOW-NYC office: 150 W. 28th St., Suite 304 @ 7th Avenue, NYC. Please RSVP today at 212.627.9895 or contact@nownyc.org.  Get more info
