    S2, Ep. 2: Demanding a Year-Round Win for Women

    As we close Women's History month, the ladies of leadership at WSB, with special guest Dale Grant, co-founder of Grant Associates – a national workforce development organization leading with principles of equity and inclusion to better serve communities, reflect on how we can maintain the momentum of leveling the playing field in the workforce. With all the strides women have made over the last century, there are still areas that we, both in our individual lives as well as in our communities, can improve upon to continue the positive trajectory of more gender equality and diversity in the United States. Join this important discussion on how such foundations can become the status quo.

    Ep. 06 - Gender Issues in the Workforce - Still existing in 2021

    Gender issues have always existed when it comes to the workforce - whether its the wage gap, earnings gap childcare access, and yes, its 2021 but discrimination is still alive and well. COVID came in and pulled that curtain back further, exposing and exacerbating these issues further.


    WSB is in full force addressing these situations - plans for the upcoming year involve community collaboration regarding early childhood education and childcare with our partners at Early Matters El Paso. Our new Family Services Director will dig deep when it comes to deconstructing the systems that do not work and supporting what’s effective.
