Women's Bureau Mission
Women in the workforce are vital to the nation's economic security. The Women's Bureau develops policies and standards and conducts inquiries to safeguard the interests of working women; to advocate for their equality and economic security for themselves and their families; and to promote quality work environments.
The fact sheets highlight the different situations of the larger populations of
women of color in the U.S. labor force.
