A Conversation About Women in the Nonprofit Workplace

Posted by Montgomery County Foundation on November 3, 2014

Event focuses on women in nonprofits

A decade of research has consistently confirmed a persistent troubling truth: women make up the majority of the regional nonprofit workforce and are both under-paid (earning 74% of what a male counterpart makes in this field) and under- represented in the leadership of large organizations.

The Montgomery County Foundation seeks to shed light on the issues with a discussion, The 74% Initiative: A Conversation About Women in the Nonprofit Workplace, on Wednesday, December 10th from 8:30 am-2:00 pm at the DoubleTree Suites, 640 Fountain Road in Plymouth Meeting.


The event will feature a presentation by Peggy Outon of the Bayer Nonprofit Center.

Tickets are $50 per person, including lunch. The event will also feature the presentation of the Women of Distinction Award to Alma Jacobs, former Pennsylvania Secretary of Aging.
