Workshop and Guest Speaker Series:
How to be a female in business and get funding
How can we prepare, train and advise women, especially those formerly incarcerated, to enter the workplace, or to start their own businesses, in the #MeToo era? The last year has been a watershed moment for women as they rise up against discrimination and unequal pay in the job sector. There are opportunities now for women of all backgrounds to take advantage of the paradigm shift and its critical that women leaving incarceration know where they can get assistance that raises their social and financial capital. It’s a new landscape and this course educates the women on new channels of professional growth and how they can develop a self-positive work method to go out and seek success.
