On June 14, 5,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C., for the first-ever White House Summit focused on gender equity. Union women and allies from AFT, AFSCME, the Bricklayers (BAC), Coalition of Labor Union Women, Electrical Workers (IBEW), Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, North America’s Building Trades Unions, Office and Professional Employees (OPEIU), the United Steelworkers (USW), United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) and other unions stood united to make sure working women had a strong presence alongside the entrepreneurs that were being celebrated by corporate funders. As celebrities took center-stage, at the entrance all eyes were on working women.
