Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color

Other Titles

Abstract

[Excerpt] This issue brief supplements the earlier report by highlighting some of the initial steps taken by the Administration to address issues faced by women and girls of color over the past year. The Council on Women and Girls has identified five data-driven issue areas where interventions can promote opportunities for success at school, work, and in the community. Continuing research in these areas and exploration of new efforts can help advance equality for women and girls of color: Fostering school success and reducing unnecessary exclusionary school discipline by implementing supportive school discipline strategies and policies, including through public awareness of the impact on girls of color; Meeting the needs of vulnerable and striving youth by recognizing and responding appropriately to the finding that many girls enter intervening public systems through a route that begins with sexual abuse and trauma; Increasing access to inclusive STEM education to meet 21st Century workforce demands and reducing opportunity gaps that affect women broadly in STEM education and fields, but often affect women and girls of color the most; Sustaining reduced rates of teen pregnancy and building on success through expanded access to knowledge about birth control and preventive health services; Expanding pathways to economic prosperity through opportunities for job mobility and investments in fair, equitable workplace policies.
