Since 2009, Women of the World has helped forcibly displaced women make Salt Lake City their home & build community through self-reliance and trust.
Women of the World offers boutique service & capacity building programs enabling displaced women’s self-reliance & community building.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
Empowering women from all nations to achieve independence, economic success, and a voice in the community.
Women of the World believes that our activities should be constantly measured for both our efforts and the impacts they have on our clients. Our activities are broken down into three programs:
Customized Service and Advocacy
Displacement from home and community is hard, most of our ladies do not even know who to turn to. Women of the World’s customized approach assures that our new neighbors have a fighting chance. We try to ensure that our ladies understand that insurance or other services are available to offset expense and the outcome of this program is to reduce our clients’ out of pocket expense.
Women of the World strives to be the “third place” (after home and work) for our women. Beyond being a safe space, we provide an environment in which women can learn English—the most essential skill in their integration into American society—by making mistakes and developing their English in those domains most important to their skills. Completion of Women of the World’s English courses have ongoing impact.
Finally, displaced women have unique skills and value propositions to share within American society. WoW works closely with our women to ensure they are progressing in the workplace, getting promoted into careers, and educating themselves and their children. The impact we have is tied directly to the revenue improvements in our women’s lives—their annualized earnings growth—where then economic ability to be self-reliant correlates with actual societal self-reliance.
