Current Women’s Schools
Current union women summer schools are coordinated by the UALE Women's Committee and rotate in location as they are hosted by university labor education programs in each region. Scholarships are available. Classes are supplemented with networking opportunities. Often participants engage in demonstrations relating to local labor struggles.
Some other organizations now also sponsor summer schools for women workers. Two of the more well-known examples are the Polk Women's Labor Leadership Conference, coordinated by the University of Illinois Labor Education Program, and the Women's Institute for Leadership Development (WILD), an independent organization in Massachusetts. While these other women's schools are not affiliated with UALE, we will also post information about them.
