My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women Employed, Chicago, IL, USA
Women Employed is one of the best run organizations I've ever seen - they are smart, effective at what they do and value every dollar and hour given to them by their supporters and put it back into the work. Since my day job is at a digital marketing agency working with many nonprofits, I've seen how many are managed and how they treat their volunteers. Initially met this organization over 10 years ago when a friend was volunteering with them. She kept saying how well run and impactful their work was for women - and had been for many years. They focus on advocating for change to help women get ahead in the world through employment and education. After checking it out myself - attending their events; reading their materials, including their annual report; checking out their credentials - how they spend their money etc. through organizations who rate charities - I decided to volunteer with my limited time. I'm still there after 8+ years! I love working with them to help change the laws, regulations and business practices that inhibit our ability - and those of our sisters, girlfriends, daughters and granddaughters - to gain pay equity, equal opportunity in the workplace and to remove obstacles like sexual harassment. I give money to several organizations - but I only give both money and my time to Women Employed. It means a lot to me - and if you check it out, I'm sure you'll find it worthy of either your time or money - or both!
