By: The Association of Junior Leagues International
Susan Danish, AJLI’s Executive Director, said, “Whether it is creating partnerships with public and private employers on the issue of equal pay and workplace fairness, or legally representing women who were subjected to workplace discrimination and sexual assault, or calling elected officials to respond forcefully to the scourge of domestic violence, Carol Robles-Román is deeply involved in some of the most pressing legal issues for women today.”
She added, “This is an area that Junior Leagues and their members care deeply about. We are delighted to be able to open up Carol’s webinar to non-League members, both as individuals and members of other organizations, so they can also benefit from her hands-on experience in creating lasting community impact.”
