Important Annoucement

March 03, 2015 By: wome0962 Category: Uncategorized

To our friends and colleagues—

Since 1979, Women At Work, first incorporated as the Women’s Public Policy Research Center, provided an array of career services for women throughout the greater San Gabriel Valley.  Our mission was clear:  to help women reach their full employment and earnings potential in a supportive environment.

In our 36-year history, thousands of women benefited from our skills training programs, career counseling and a variety of job resources.  These women found jobs, built careers and even started their own businesses.

Throughout these three decades, we have received generous financial support from individuals, foundations and employers.  Their gifts to Women At Work helped to transform lives.   Community, business and elected leaders were integral to the network that champions a vibrant workplace that includes women at all levels and in all sectors.

Despite our significant fundraising efforts we are unable to build a sustainable base of support.  As a result, the Board of Directors of Women At Work made the difficult and critical decision to reevaluate our current model.  We will continue scheduled programs through March 15, while evaluating ways to transition and restructure our organization.  During this transition we will review and focus on the contemporary needs of women in the evolving 21st Century workplace.

Women At Work remains committed to the issues that ignited the start of this organization: supporting the needs of women seeking employment, pay equity, career development and advancement.  We believe in the strength that comes from women helping women.  We are so grateful to all those who have supported Women At Work—donors, volunteers and community partners.  And, finally, to the working women we have assisted, we applaud your achievements and are honored by your triumphs.  We take pride in knowing that you are role models, mentors and leaders for the next generation of women entering the workplace.

Camille Levee
Executive Director

RALEIGH, N.C. —In her first twenty years of her profession, Barbara Hemphill focused on helping individuals and organizations eliminate paper and physical clutter. In the following ten years, the dawning of the Internet age offered opportunities to apply her principles to the ensuing digital clutter, and now in recent years she has become acutely aware that there is a challenging and subtle emotional and spiritual clutter that truly prevents people from accomplishing their work and enjoying their lives.
