Changing the Story: Blueprint for Change
Women's Foundation of Arkansas
This event marks the public release of three reports from the Womenâ€™s Foundation of Arkansas that address the barriers in a 21st century education for women and girls in Arkansas. The reports examine the impact of teen pregnancy and birth on education, the perceptions of the status of women and the links between education of women and girls to Arkansasâ€™s economic future.
*In partnership with the Clinton Health Matters Initiative
The Women's Foundation of Arkansas is proud to partner with the Clinton School of Public Service on the release of its latest publication, Changing the Story: Blueprint for Change. In March of 2016, the Women's Foundation of Arkansas along with several partner organizations hosted a summit, or rather a call to action, for stakeholders around the state to address the status of women and girls in Arkansas and working in focus areas developed recommendations for improving the lives of females in our state. Following the Summit, over the course of a year, four working groups continued with the action plans to develop a blueprint for change in the areas of health, education, economics and workforce, and politics and leadership. The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas is proud to showcase the efforts of all the dedicated volunteers who are committed to changing the status of women and girls in the state.
