Status of Women in Northeast Wisconsin Report – 2017 Update

The Women’s Fund is proud to partner with the Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund, the Women’s Fund of Greater Green Bay, and the Women’s Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation to produce the Status of Women in Northeast Wisconsin Report.

With the help of the Wisconsin Women’s Council, we were able to compile data for Brown, Fond du Lac, Outagamie and Winnebago counties, as well as data for Wisconsin as a whole. The report is intended to help inform local communities about the realities experienced by women and girls. The 2017 report gives a current and comprehensive picture of the most pressing issues for women and girls in Northeast Wisconsin.

The report analyzes data from 12 key indicators of the status of women in our region and confirms that despite our many successes, much work needs to be done to help women and girls reach their full potential.
