Working for Advancement – Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW)

A few months back I came across a great organization called Wider Opportunities for Women (WOW).  WOW works across the country to

to build pathways to economic independence for America’s families, women, and girls.

WOW also has a large public policy branch that works actively to promote gender equality at the legislative level. Two programs that WOW currently has in action are the Work4Women and Workplace Solutions [information to be released soon] initiatives, which help women gain access to non-traditional high paying jobs in addition to technical and vocational skills to achieve economic advancement.

Click here to read more about their extensive public policy outreach.  On this page I’d recommend exploring the resources in the Women and Family Economic Security section.  There is lots of economic data and research on the advantages of promoting equity at the individual and household level.

Finally you can click WOW’s logo below to learn more about their impressive and commendable work
