Featuring Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women's Law Center
On December 7, the Milken Institute School of Public Health will welcome Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women's Law Center (NWLC), to campus to give the Edward N. Brandt, Jr. Memorial Lecture in Women’s Health. She will speak about NWLC's work to advance women's health, including the TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund, which is housed at and administered by NWLC. The TIME'S UP Legal Defense Fund connects those who experience sexual misconduct -- including assault, harassment, abuse, and related retaliation in the workplace or in trying to advance their careers -- with legal and public relations assistance.
Ms. Goss Graves, who has served in numerous roles at NWLC for more than a decade, has spent her career fighting to advance opportunities for women and girls. She has a distinguished track record working across a broad set of issues central to women’s lives, including income security, health and reproductive rights, education access, and workplace fairness. Ms. Goss Graves is among the co-founders of the TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund.
A light lunch will be available prior to the lecture, from 11:30am - noon; the lecture will begin at noon. RSVPs are encouraged but not required.
