Women Build

Women Build is an initiative to empower women to help families build strength, stability and independence. We want to raise awareness surrounding issues and hardships affecting women and girls internationally, nationally, and locally that impede their ability to thrive, enjoy stability, and build generational wealth.  

Memphis Habitat is actively working to revive our Women Build initiative. In 2021, we will host a conversation series designed to bring awareness to issues facing women and girls in our community and around the world. We’ll share more ways to engage in the coming months. In the meantime, we want to invite you to watch a conversation hosted by Habitat for Humanity International.

+You: Women, housing and the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic
Thursday, March 11 at 10am CST | YouTube

Women are at the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. They are also disproportionately bearing the costs of the economic downturn. At a time when staying home has become the first line of defense against the virus, what role is safe and decent housing playing in supporting women during the pandemic? As we mark International Women Build Week (March 8-15), Habitat for Humanity International will host a discussion about what the pandemic has revealed and changed about the status of women, and about how safe, decent and healthy housing has never been more important in supporting their stability and opportunity. (Panelists to be announced.)
