Career(gar): Afghan-American Women in the Workplace

Continuing the Women of TSN (WTSN) series, this conversation is a collaborative with the Afghan American Women’s Collective (AAWC). Afghan women are raised to be kari-gaar, hardworking, for the family, and now for careers in the U.S. We are now juggling being “career-gars." So what is it like being an Afghan woman in the workplace? How does being an Afghan woman in the workforce affect advancements and workplace interactions? This conversation aims to point out some of the challenges, from the community and from the workplace. We will also highlight best practices and solutions that women have found to help in these situations. The panel will feature women from different professional industries.
