Meet the CWEALF Team: Maddie Granato

CWEALF's team includes more than just the full time staff. Our board members, community partners, cooperating attorneys, donors, interns and volunteers make our work to empower women, girls and their families to achieve equal opportunities in their personal and professional lives possible. Meet our new Policy Associate, Maddie Granato! 

What's the first thing you do in the morning? 

The first thing I do in the morning is make my bed. I read somewhere a while ago that making your bed paves the way for a productive day. I don't know how true that is, but I've gotten in the habit of doing it anyways.

What do you currently do at CWEALF? 

I am a Policy Associate specifically working on the CT Campaign for Paid Family Leave, a coalition co-chaired by CWEALF advocating for the passage of paid leave here in Connecticut. During the legislative session, I also assist our Legal & Public Policy Director in monitoring and providing testimony for CWEALF's other legislative priorities. This year, that included affirmative consent and strengthened protections for victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. 

What do you love most about your job?

I started at CWEALF as an intern, and have always been really appreciative of the fact that everyone on staff is so kind and welcoming. There are a lot of things that I love about my job here at CWEALF, but getting to work and spend time with such great people every day is definitely at the top of the list.

What's your idea of the perfect day off? 

If it's summertime, my perfect day off would definitely be spent at the beach, with a good book and tons of sun. There is nothing better! If it's colder, my perfect day would probably be just sitting at home watching reruns of Park and Recreation (it never gets old) and eating my mom's cooking.
