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 Allegheny County. 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.
EmployHER Pittsburgh is a collaborative initiative between Dress for Success Pittsburgh, New Century Careers and When She Thrives aimed at providing access to better employment, personal development, and educational opportunities for women in Allegheny County.
New Century Careers is a nonprofit manufacturer and technical skills development organization serving the Southwestern Pennsylvania region through inclusive access to technical training opportunities while helping employers find and develop technicians seeking purpose, passion, and success in the workplace.
