Programs:

The opportunities for women in nontraditional employment (owne) initiative assisted 18 partner job training programs across the country in building strategic and targeted practices and policies for the recruitment, enrollment, retention, and placement of women in fields traditionally dominated by men, such as the building trades, advanced manufacturing, and logistics. The greater national center for women's employment equity offered technical assistance and events to help a wide range of industry partners, workforce development systems, community colleges, job training programs and community groups to build inclusive workforce and training practices.

the economic security for survivors (ess) project worked across the country to augment how victim services and the justice system respond to intimate partner and sexual violence by providing strategies, tools, education and training that can be integrated into the programs and policies that support survivor safety and well-being.

the elder economic security initiative generated research examining the economic security status of seniors at the federal, state and community levels, and supported advocacy by 17 state partners to increase economic security. With local partners, the initiative educated a wide variety of audiences, including policy makers, on seniors' and older workers' current and future retirement needs.

wow provides women with information, education, training and advisory services in career planning and employment, as well as encouraging the development of new occupational opportunities.
