When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: Needs Must Include Concerns of Women Living with Disabilities

The NCIL Women’s Caucus has determined that the 2014 women’s economic agenda and President Obama’s plan to expand opportunity for every American needs to include more clearly issues and concerns of women living with disabilities. For that reason, it is important that women with disabilities tell Congress about the important issues they would like to see highlighted, enhanced, and added. If you would like to share your thoughts, please come prepared to speak on camera at this year’s Annual NCIL Conference in Washington, D.C. Your ideas will be recorded on Sunday, July 27, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Washington.

  • Access to education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for future employment as a woman living with disabilities
  • Access to child care as a woman living with disabilities

Your message will be edited, captioned, and shared with Congress as our statement from the NCIL Women’s Caucus!
