It’s time for change.

For every dollar a man earns, a woman earns 75 cents. If she’s a woman of colour, she will earn 60 cents.

With the support of our funders and community, we’re breaking down barriers to achieve women’s economic equality. We are dedicated to helping women and gender diverse individuals break through social and systemic barriers to employment because we believe everyone deserves economic security and a fulfilling life.

Are you willing to share your knowledge to help a women gain employment and succeed in her new role? We are often looking for community-minded professionals to lend their expertise to specialized workshops or training sessions. Whether it be helping to prepare participants for job interviews, leading a workshop on resume writing or building a website, your insights will help a woman achieve her goal of economic security for herself and her family.
