What Is WAND?

Women Achieving New Directions is a 6-session career development and networking service. In the current economic downturn, when unemployment rates are rising, it’s clear that women heads of households are among the groups taking the hardest hit.

Moreover, women are still earning less than their male counterparts. Women who are full-time wage and salary workers earn only 80% of what equivalent men earn. WAND helps women discover more about themselves, develop job readiness skills and career confidence, network with potential employers, and think about non-traditional career opportunities.
