Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Vermont Works for Women promotes economic justice by advancing gender equity and supporting women and youth at every stage of their career journeys. Pay inequity and poverty undermine individual, family, and community stability – in the present and for future generations. Despite the appearance of progress, women in Vermont still earn only 84 cents on the dollar compared to men, and women are a minority in the high-demand occupations that might help them build a sustainable life for themselves and their family.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Womens Programs

Vermont Works for Women's Work Readiness and Skills Training programs help over 250 women annually to gain employability skills and industry-recognized credentials that can lead to meaningful work and economic stability. Programs are targeted to women with substantial barriers to employment such as generational poverty, histories of substance use disorder, or incarceration, and are offered in community and classroom settings in Chittenden and Franklin Counties, at the Chittenden County Regional Correctional Facility for women, and with local training partners.

Population(s) Served
Women and girls

Vermont Works for Women's Rosie’s Girls welding and carpentry summer camps, annual Women Can Do career exploration conference, and Career Challenge Days in technical centers serve 800 girls and gender non-conforming youth ages 11-17 from every county in Vermont – developing confidence and resilience through hands-on experiences that tap in to their own limitless potential. Summer and year-round activities in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), trades, and leadership development help girls build grit, connection, and expanded possibilities.

Population(s) Served
Intersex people

More than just an employment or workforce development organization, Vermont Works for Women is a women’s economic empowerment organization, supporting economic independence by addressing the root causes of pay inequity, busting gender stereotypes, and expanding access to financially viable jobs and careers. We are a founding partner in Change The Story Vermont, a collaboration with the Vermont Women’s Fund and the Vermont Commission on Women to fast-track women’s economic well-being through data analysis, shaping policy that benefits working women, and working with employers.
