On Monday, November 13th the Zonta Club of Quaboag Valley will host the Women’s Fund of Western MA at the Ludlow Country Club. The public is invited to hear key findings from their latest research report on Gender Equity in Western Massachusetts: The Status of Women, Girls, Transgender, Nonbinary, and Gender-Diverse Adults and Youth, from Amihan Jennifer Matias, Sr. Director of Community Partnerships, and Sarah Monson, Senior Director of Philanthropy. Joining them will be Lisa Ranghelli from the Public Health Institute of Western MA, a lead researcher of the Gender Equity Report. The extensive data synthesized in this report shed light on strengths, progress, and areas of continued or emerging gender inequities in the four counties and provide actionable insights for advancing gender-equitable policies and practices. Individuals involved with inclusion and equity from community-based organizations, for-profit and not-for-profit companies, schools, higher educational institutions, and more will benefit from this conversation. Please join us at the Ludlow Country Club in Ludlow MA on Monday, November 13, 2023. 5:30 – 6 Socialize, 6 pm Buffet Dinner, followed by the Program. There will be time for Q&A and maybe some brainstorming on how to move forward.
