Presentation on Economic Impact on Women/Girls in Chester County
Immaculata University is proud to present Michelle Legaspi Sanchez, the executive director for the Chester County Fund for Women and Girls (CCFWG), who will discuss the impact of the recent recession on women and girls in the Chester County area. The presentation, held on Thursday, November 30, at 6:30 p.m. in Loyola Hall (room 127), is free and open to the public.
Sanchez will examine the 2016 Blueprint Report, which is the only comprehensive needs assessment of women and girls in Chester County. Based on data collected, the report underscores the long-term effects of the economic recession on the health, safety, and financial security of women and girls. The Blueprint Report, and consequently the presentation at Immaculata, brings these issues and trends to the foreground and informs dialog and planning.
Prior to being named executive director of CCFWG, Sanchez served as director of Programs. In addition, she held the position of director of Evaluation and Reporting at the Maternal and Child Health Consortium of Chester County. Sanchez earned a master’s degree in social work and another master’s degree in public health, both from the University of Pennsylvania. She is an adjunct professor at Immaculata and West Chester Universities.
The presentation is sponsored by the Business Advisory Board for Immaculata’s Business, Fashion and Leadership Department.
