Texas Capital Bank Partners with Texas Women's Foundation and Dallas Federal Reserve to Host Economic Issues for Women in Texas Forum

NORTHAMPTON, MA / ACCESSWIRE / November 15, 2022 / Texas Capital Bank

Texas Women’s Foundation recently released their 2022 study, Economic Issues for Women in Texas. The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly and disproportionally impacted Texas women, intensifying difficulties surrounding childcare, education, health insurance, housing, and even household expenses. In short, the pandemic exacerbated the issues and inequities that Texas women and girls have been grappling with for years.

On Thursday, November 10, 2022 Texas Women’s Foundation, in partnership with Texas Capital Bank, set out to clarify and address these challenges during a special review and panel discussion hosted at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. The research study, Economic Issues for Women in Texas 2022, was presented, followed by a ‘Solutions Panel’ which discussed Texas Women’s Foundation’s recent report of the same name and highlighted some stark realities:

  • Texas is home to over 14.6 million women and girls

  • 60% are in households that face difficulty with expenses

  • 3 out of 5 households post-secondary education plans changed due to the pandemic

  • More than 1 in 5 working-age women lack health insurance

  • 70% of working women have children at home under the age of 16

Together we convened over 150 attendees to learn about the exacerbated issues facing women as a result of the pandemic and hosted a solutions panel to discuss how we can help.
