Economic Empowerment
The Economic Empowerment Agenda strives to help girls and women achieve long-term financial independence. The agenda acts as a resource for educational opportunities enabling them to stay on top of their financial status. An annual Financial Literacy Guide is produced and available on the NYWA website to give readers a listing of Internet resources, literature (magazine and books) and financial literacy courses and seminars held throughout NYC. Certification for women business owners to gain access to government/private corporate procurement opportunities is another aspect of our educational action focus. And, working with the Government Relations Committee. Other economic security issues are addressed such as pay equity, opportunities for women to participate on paid boards, domestic violence in the workplace, etc.
