Course Description

CE Course Description

Although in recent years women and girls of color have made tremendous progress in terms of overall health and well-being, many challenges and disparities still exist. This brief, intermediate level continuing education course was developed using information from The White House Council on Women and Girls in order to summarize how women of color are progressing in the areas of education, economic security, health, criminal and juvenile justice, and violence. Additionally, data are presented to summarize advances and continued areas of struggle, as well as policies, programs, and initiatives that are attempting to address persistent gaps experienced by women of color.

CE Course Objectives

1. Discuss progress made by women of color in the areas of security, health, and well-being issues as well as barriers and disparities that still exist.
