WFM Board Member Publishes Op-Ed in the Mississippi Business Journal
October 17, 2023 - General News, Newsroom - Posted by Women's Foundation Team
Margaret Oertling Cupples, a board member of the Women’s Foundation of Mississippi (WFM), published an op-ed in the Mississippi Business Journal that shows the value of investing in women. Her article shares a fresh perspective on how offering family-friendly workplace policies is not only altruistic, but also better for profits.
Interest in how businesses can support women in the workplace has increased since the recent Nobel Prize in Economics, which was awarded to Claudia Goldin for her work outlining the gaps in career earnings by gender.
Cupples’ op-ed, as well as the Women’s Foundation’s signature Thrive @ Work event, provide businesses in Mississippi the tools they need to support better conditions in the workplace, advance gender wage equality, and help their employees thrive.
