Change, Change, Change!
We have two new programs starting fall 2023:
Digital Skills For The Workplace, a workshop-based program to increase digital literacy and employability of women and gender diverse individuals, focusing on marginalized communities across Canada. By providing accessible and practical digital skills training, we aim to close the gender gap in the Canadian labour market. This program is offered in partnership with, and developed by, YWCA Toronto.
W.A.G.E.S: Warriors. Aspiring to end. Gender Based Violence for. Equity and. Security, a cross-functional program to support tenants of Kitchener-Waterloo's supportive housing and emergency shelter in shaping their future with skills building through life skills, employment, and entrepreneurial exploration.
Re-branding fall 2023:
We have a new name & a new website coming soon!
YW’s In Her Shoes Employment and Entrprenuership Program (IHS) is becoming Integrated Holistic Career Services (IHCS). We remain committed to supporting women (cis and trans), and gender diverse people to achieve financial independence by developing career management skills.
Thank you to all of our funding agencies and public supporters who have allowed this growth to continue!
