#31Days of Feminism: Anika Campbell


NBC NEWS: #31Days of Feminism: Anika Campbell

Throughout the month of March, NBCBLK, NBCLatino, and NBC Asian America have partnered with the Ms. Foundation for Women for #31Days of Feminism to spotlight women of color who, through their actions and words, lead the way toward a more equal world. NBC highlighted Executive Director Anika CampbellĀ and the Center for Frontline Retail’s work for day 25.

When asked “What do you love the most about the work you do?” Anika replied:

“Members are the heart of the Center for Frontline Retail and what I love most about what I do. Retail workers are the silent schedule strugglers of the workforce and have to deal with the demands of balancing an unpredictable schedule and their personal lives, especially those who are caregivers and students.

Leadership development of retail workers, especially the women who are caregivers/ mothers know the struggle of balancing an unpredictable retail schedule and their full-time parenting job, creates public awareness that this is one of the fastest growing industries where people work to sustain a family. When women become leaders at CFR, in their retail stores, and in their communities it gives me life.”
