For almost 30 years, Melissa Josephs has been on the frontlines of Women Employed’s policy work — drafting bills, building coalitions, talking to the press, and working with legislators, aldermen, mayors, governors, and policymakers to change the landscape for working women. As our board chair Lisa Pattis said, “This state is a far better place to get up and go to work in every day because of the work of Melissa Josephs.”

At the end of this month, on the heels of the amazing legislative victories outlined in our June issue of WE-Zine, Melissa is stepping away from policy work to begin the well-deserved next chapter of her life. We sat down with her to reflect on her time at Women Employed. We will miss you, Melissa!
