About the Event

Description:

What is EmployHER Pittsburgh?

EmployHER Pittsburgh is a new initiative led by three Pittsburgh-based non-profit organizations: Dress for Success Pittsburgh, When She Thrives & New Century Careers.

The goal of the initiative is to change the trajectory of women’s lives by eliminating barriers on the front end and empowering the women to define success and financial independence on their own terms.

This quarterly Opportunity Fair will be held at the University of Pittsburgh Community Resource Center in Homewood. Participants will be able to connect with Community Partners, Employment Resources and work one on one with a Success Partner to build their Success Plan. 

Event Support Volunteers will be needed to help set up, guide community anchor partners and other vendors to where they need to go, greet participants, and make sure everyone leaves feeling supported and respected.
