Vermont Works for Women’s Gender Equity Advancement Roundtable (GEAR) coalesces businesses, nonprofits, and advocates to further learn about best practices and policies for supporting women in the workplace and to collectively advance gender equity and economic justice in the state of Vermont.

GEAR members receive an invitation to four roundtable sessions each year, where they have the opportunity to hear from gender and equity experts, consult with Vermont Works for Women (VWW) on best practices and policies, and network with Vermont businesses and professionals who are equally invested in supporting women’s economic independence.

Gender Equity is our opportunity to create an economy in Vermont that works for all. Join GEAR today!

Equity Check-In
Every session will begin with introductions and updates from each member. We will hear from GEAR members on how gender equity efforts are going in their business or organization. Have you implemented any new policies, practices, or supports in the workplace recently? Have there been any recent challenges or successes?

Presentation/Discussion Topic
Human-Friendly Workplaces: Policies and practices that support women in the workplace are good for everyone! We’ll hear from Working Bridges about valuable resources employers can provide for their employees that address many of the typical barriers and can enhance retention and engagement in the workplace.
