About EmployHER

In April 2021, Dress for Success Pittsburgh, When She Thrives, and New Century Careers partnered to participate in the Building Productive Partnerships pilot hosted by Bayer Center and PACE Foundation. What resulted was the collaborative development of EmployHER Pittsburgh.

EmployHER Pittsburgh is designed to remove barriers like access to childcare and transportation through pop up engagement events, bringing multiple nonprofit resources and prospective employers to the communities of women across the region. Each woman who attends the opportunity fair will be supported by a success partner to help them set and achieve their self-defined goals over a six-month period.
