Mission Statement

Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) aims to improve the economic self-sufficiency of women by training and advocating for their employment in high-paying, high-skilled jobs in construction.

Description

Since 1978, NEW has helped thousands of unemployed and underemployed women in the New York City area achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment in the skilled blue-collar trades. We are a nonprofit organization providing an integrated program of occupational skills and fitness training, job readiness, counseling and case management, and job placement services in occupations in which women are underrepresented. Graduates of NEW, who constitute the majority of women hard hats in New York City, work in a variety of industrial and technical jobs throughout the building trades. NEW also works to change the climate for women in nontraditional work by providing national advocacy and technical assistance services to labor unions, employers, nonprofit organizations, and government.
