The Atlanta Women's Foundation’s Breaking Barriers, Building Women: Economic Empowerment Program will allow AWF to award a total of $1 million over two years to eight local nonprofit organizations, focusing on higher education and asset building for low-income women in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett, and Fulton counties. AWF will also host annual workshops and trainings for the cohort. Through round-table discussions and presentations, participants will explore the challenges facing women and discuss the best ways to engage groups and individuals to build momentum and best practices on improving the well-being of women in Georgia. The goal of the trainings is to provide organizational capacity building, to encourage dialogue, cross-functional partnerships, and strategic alliances, and to foster collaboration among service providers.
AWF is grateful to The Coca-Cola Company for their support of the Breaking Barriers, Building Women: Economic Empowerment Program.
