This webinar highlighted a new toolkit developed through JFF's Greenways work. Women represent less than 25 percent of the labor force and remain underrepresented in many occupations that offer high wage jobs and career advancement opportunities. Recruitment is the first step in connecting women to these high quality careers and emerging areas of the economy, and this webinar provides concrete ideas on how to recruit women into training for nontraditional occupations. Lauren Sugerman of Wider Opportunities for Woemn discussed the value of adding a gender lens to outreach and assessment and provided examples of successful strategies that have been implemented by workforce development providers.
The webinar also introduced the Pink to Green Toolkit: Adding a Gender Lens to Green Jobs Training Programs, which provides tools to assist organizations in developing relevant plans, processes, and curricula at each stage of their training programs in order to foster success of women in nontraditional occupations.
Presenters: Deborah Kobes, JFF and Lauren Sugerman, Wider Opportunities for Women
