Women In Vermont's Economy

Dec 5, 2013

We’ve all heard about the glass ceiling. And the fact that there are fewer women in science, math, and engineering jobs. But that’s not just bad for women…it’s not so great for the economy either.

A new report recommends ways to get women and girls prepared to enter Vermont’s economy. We’ll talk about those recommendations with Tiffany Bluemle, Executive Director of Vermont Works for Women, and Stephanie Seguino, Professor of Economics at University of Vermont. We'll also hear from Department of Labor Commissioner Annie Noonan.
