MATAWAN, N.J., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In the spirit of women helping women during this season of gratitude, three NY/NJ Metro organizations are joining forces for good. Wet Cement and Working for Women are teaming up to help women who have previously been in the criminal justice or social service system gain the skills they need to achieve economic independence. The partnership kicks off with a workshop for Raising HOPE entitled Understanding and Overcoming Imposter Syndrome on November 13, 2019 in Kingston, NY.
Wet Cement CEO and Founder Jennifer Willey will present strategies to Raising HOPE's participants that help them overcome and manage internal barriers and realize their goals. Raising HOPE, a Working for Women nonprofit partner, gives women the tools they need to become financially and emotionally independent. The organization's unique women-to-women mentoring program aims to reduce the chances that women will re-enter the social service or criminal justice systems. Working for Women's corporate members are committed to sharing expertise and financial contributions towards building skills and knowledge needed by underserved women to enter or re-enter the workforce.
"When you invest in women, you empower women to build a better life for themselves and their families. Women have a proven track record of investing back into their families and their communities. We are looking for more businesses like Wet Cement to join our efforts and help us elevate women to economic independence," explained Beth Bengtson, Working for Women founder and CEO.
"This program is a personal passion project that unites mission, commitment and partnership to make a difference," said Jennifer Willey, Wet Cement Founder and CEO. "I am truly honored to help Raising HOPE's women rediscover their inherent self-worth so they can own their voice and future with confidence. In joining forces with Working for Women, we can be more effective in our corporate giving than by doing so alone."
