Armed with a self-help book, a lot of determination and hard work, three women, namely Betty Ann Jansson, Barbara Burke and Marge Leighton were granted a Federal Tax ID number and became a certified non-profit in 1979. Its mission for over 30 years has been to empower women who, no matter what their education, often earn less than men and are under-represented in many employment fields. In recent years with the economic down-turn Women At Work has broadened its mission to provide services to both men and women seeking work.

Women At Work is currently the only non-government bilingual (English/Spanish) career and job resource center serving Los Angeles County.
