Know Your Value: Women of Color Net and Self-Worth

Women of Color-Ruth Washington.jpgEastern's Women's Center hosted a seminar, "Know Your Value: Women of Color Net and Self-Worth," on Feb. 4 and Feb. 11 in the Student Center. Both seminars were moderated by Ruth Washington, professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of Connecticut, and covered a variety of topics including education, career planning and personal wellness. According to Washington, the median wealth among white women in the United States in their prime working years (36-49) is $42,600. However, according to a May 2010 report released by the Insight Center for Community Economic Development, among African American and Hispanic women in the same age range, the median is $5.
