Our second Minnesota Union Women's Leadership Retreat was a success, with more than 100 women, most of them union members, gathered in late April for learning and networking.
The theme was "Coming Together to Build a Better Future." Participants learned about the economic challenges facing workers — especially women — and discussed ways to bridge racial and generational differences to achieve solidarity. Read more about the retreat on Workday Minnesota. Ashley Christenson of SEIU Healthcare Minnesota produced a wonderful video about the retreat.
