The statistics are disturbing. 100% of the 140,000 jobs lost in December were among women. As of September 2020, there were 2.2 million fewer women in the workforce. And in that same month, 865,000 women left the workforce compared to 216,000 men.
We have been working around the clock, throughout the pandemic, to help women get on their feet and back to work. Today, we have launched a full-scale campaign to help women even more.
Please support the Working Wardrobes Rebuilding Careers scholarship program. Our comprehensive $3,000 scholarships provide computer technology courses, laptops, professional clothing and all the workforce readiness resources women need to rebuild their careers and their lives. We provide job mapping to industries in recovery and help women retool their skills to thrive in these industries.
