PWN-USA takes a three-pronged approach to address economic justice issues by:
 
1) advocating for policies that give women with HIV more options to work and earn a livable wage with a flexibility that matches the realities of their lives
2) creating economic opportunities for women living with HIV including connecting women to potential paid opportunities and 
3) engaging in partnerships that provide tools and skills to achieve economic empowerment.
 
To join PWN-USA in discussing this three-prong approach, the following speakers will address Advancing Employment Opportunities and Economic Justice for Women Living with HIV:

Mark Misrok, Chair for the National Working Positive Coalition (NWPC)
