Listening & Learning Tour Past Event: Clovis 2024

In February 2024 , a Listening & Learning Tour event was held in Clovis, New Mexico, at the Clovis Community College. The event was focused on economic security for women, which was determined to be one of the top four issues affecting women in our state. This information came from the previous Listening & Learning Tour in 2021 and was also selected in response to the economic and work challenges women faced during the pandemic.

The CSW worked with local and state political officials, Small Business Development Center personnel, and the team at CCC. The goal of this collaboration was to provide women with an ongoing group of local resources to draw from in the future, as well as to establish connections in this region of the state.
