I have had the chance to work with WOW for over 15 years to promote the adoption and usage of the Self-Sufficiency standard, as a modification to the federal poverty guideline across the country. The Self-Sufficiency Standard reflects the true cost of living based on the geographical location and household types. To date, we have seen significant impact on how the Self-Sufficiency Standard have influenced public policies and reshaped programs that deals with economic development, workforce development, and the safety net system. The Standard has helped many communities to rethink how they need to invest and realign their resources to ensure they build an economy that provides the proper safety net and livable income to ensure folks have enough to make ends meet.

We were successful in getting the San Francisco Workforce Investment Board to set-aside funds to support career advance and skills building v. investing solely in entry-level job training programs.

I have had the pleasure of serving on the Board of Wider Opportunities for Women for the past several years. WOW is a uniquely important organization. WOW brings its deep and broad experience in program operation and research to bear in shaping national workforce development policy. As such WOW has gained enormous respects and a well deserved national reputation. WOW speaks with authority on issues of concern to working women and national policy makers listen.

I have been involved with hundreds of non-profit organizations--including in past years working as a federal advocate for women. WOW has the best track record I have ever seen of really serving working women as well as women looking for work. They simply 'get it' when it comes to the challenges of helping women get better access to better paying jobs. They also do a fine job educating policy makers about how low income women and their families can get out of poverty AND remain economically stable for good!

The Great!

Seeing how WOW was able to get New York City to adopt their innovative self-sufficiency calculator [showing what it really cost to live in NYC] as a training tool for women and public assistance case managers.
