Work/ Career

I am a student at American University for the Washington Semester Program, and am working on a policy analysis. I am trying to analyze Gore's Reinventing Government plan and incorporate how it affects women--in the federal workforce, and other areas. If you have any interest in this idea, or any previous research or position on this, please let me know. I am open for any new information, comments and suggestions. Thank you for your time. Holly

There are a couple places I would suggest trying:

1.) The Department of Labor has a Women's Bureau, which is (or was) headed by Karen Nussbaum. Karen was previously at 9to5, National Association of Working Women. So the combination of her grassroots organizing work and her government work--she should be a good person to link up with.

2.) The Feminist Majority Foundation. A year ago, the Feminst Majority Foundation had a conference on "post Beijing activities" (i.e. in response the 1995 UN Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing). The primary purpose of the conference was to put the conference documents into real terms in the U.S. They had great workshops on labor; workforce; etc.... so they would be a good place to start.

3.) The White House has an Office of Women's Initiatives and Outreach. Although the information you get here might be a little skewed, it might be worth a shot.
