Building a Bridge to Close the Economic Gap

What We Do

EDUCATION

In addition to the various successful programs we provide, to help women succeed, we also invest in researching to identify the most pressing issues facing women for the solutions to address those issues. We provide education to legislators to make informed decisions about issues that will change the context and improve the overall quality of life for communities of color.

LEADERSHIP

WOCCF encourages women as emerging leaders to expand their skills, experience, and confidence to influence, organize, and direct positive change within their organization and community.

 

WOCCF mentors women to excel at identifying common needs, networking, collaborating, knowledge sharing and professional growth.

ECONOMIC SECURITY

We seek to expand economic security to all women of color so that they can care for themselves and their families.
