Immigration and Gender Webinar

From the Opportunity Agenda

WEBINAR INVITATION: Immigration and Gender: An Analysis of Public Opinion and Media Coverage

February 13, 2013
2:00-3:00pm EST

As a group, immigrants who are women face challenges that are often overlooked in public discourse surrounding other immigration concerns. Women often find themselves at the intersection of matters related to work, immigration status, family, and gender, affected by each of these in ways that are often ignored in the policy arena.
To ensure that women’s concerns are included in conversations regarding immigration, we need to know how current discourse and public opinion treat immigrant women, and how we can leverage existing opportunities, improve coverage, and shape discussions.
During this telebriefing speakers will present research and recommendations that pertain to public opinion and media coverage of immigrant women.

Speakers include:
Sienna Baskin, Urban Justice Center
Michelle Brané, Women’s Refugee Commission
Julie Rowe, The Opportunity Agenda
Loren Siegel, Loren Siegel Consulting
Juhu Thukral, The Opportunity Agenda
