The American Dream asserts hard work equals success. The truth is that this American Dream is unreachable for many immigrants, and for many immigrant women especially. Regardless of where they are from and their education level, women are more likely to be out of the workforce or underemployed. This is particularly the case for immigrant women who are not US educated: one in three are out of the workforce, and many more remain employed in low-wage or temporary positions.
New Women New Yorkers provides innovative, year-round programming in two key areas:
Workforce development: Current programming includes our LEAD and Bridge to LEAD job readiness training series, group practice and networking sessions in partnership with companies, and individual support in the form of resume review, phone screening interviews, and career counseling.
Community building, community education, and storytelling: Current programming include our monthly Community Mixers and Cultural Trips, our storytelling group in partnership with The Moth, and our Real People. Real Lives. Women Immigrants of New York exhibit project.
