Technology Education for Low-Income
Women in Fairfield County
Partner: Women’s Mentoring Network (WMN)
The focus of the Women’s Mentoring Network for the past 30 years has always been to help women and their families move forward from unemployment and entry-level jobs to achieve economic empowerment and economic mobility. The foundational skills provided by the organization are crucial, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, which has amplified pre-existing inequities like the Digital Divide. This project funded a tech education program, in partnership with Microsoft, for at least 50 individuals, teaching them the skills necessary to thrive in the job market.
