NCRW Western Regional Conference 2011

The National Council for Research on Women held its 2011 Western Regional Conference at Claremont Graduate University bringing together experts from across the network, including academic, nonprofit, philanthropic, business, and policy leaders, to focus on the status of women’s leadership across sectors. The conference identified best practices and recommended next steps for advancing women into decision-making positions in our economy and society both nationally and globally. It was an opportunity for NCRW member research, policy, and advocacy centers to strategize about a collective agenda for change.
 

The Rise of Women in the Creative Class

Women have become an increasingly important force in the U.S. labor market and especially in its knowledge based creative economy. Some argue that the economic crisis has tilted the playing field away from men, who have borne the brunt of blue collar job losses, and towards women, who are more concentrated in knowledge and service work. Using data from the American Community Survey (ACS) of the U.S. Census Bureau, this report provides a numbers-driven look at the status of women in today’s job market, nationally and state-by-state (plus the District of Columbia). We develop a measure of the “location premium” states which provide for women overall and for women in the Creative Class.
