The Women’s Pathway to Success Program is transformative, resulting in job creation, reduction in poverty, and eliminating barriers to employment for women in metro Atlanta. This program will impact a minimum of 18,000 women over 5-years. Investing in women achieves lasting returns for families and communities.
Under the Women’s Pathway to Success Program, ten local nonprofit organizations will receive support over five years to provide the critical combination of services needed to move women to economic self-sufficiency. This combination of services includes access to workforce training and development, microenterprise development, childcare, financial literacy, and employment opportunities for women at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. To date, AWF has awarded $1.3 million in grants to this initiative.
AWF applies a Collective Impact Approach to its grantmaking. Program components include cohort multi-year funding; facilitated discussions to foster a safe environment for peer sharing; program evaluation technical assistance; individualized one-on-one consultation; workshops and trainings; and interactive convenings that allow nonprofits an opportunity to share their work and explore collaboration.
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, funding for year four of the program will shift to meet the developing needs of AWF grantees and their clients.
AWF is grateful to Georgia Power, Inspire Atlanta, and Stitch Fix for their support of the Women's Pathway to Success Program.
