What is our EPP?

Women of the World (WoW) provides hope, support, scholarships, education, and a sense of community to hundreds of forcibly displaced women and their families. The Employer Partnership Program is designed to make the hiring process more efficient and effective for our ladies and for employers. One of the most challenging aspects of seeking employment for our ladies is the hiring process due to language, cultural, and technological hurdles.

Employment is one of the biggest steps towards independence and self-reliance, making it a major focus for WoW.

 

We are not a hiring agency or human resources department - we are a nonprofit working to empower forcibly displaced women by helping them attain and retain jobs. Our services are completely free for both clients and employers.

why hire our clients?

On average, 1 WoW client provides for 4 individuals. This means that by providing employment, you are taking part in one of the most impactful steps toward self-sufficiency for some of our community's most vulnerable.

The backgrounds of our women speak for their adaptability & resilience. Many of them are quick to learn & innovative in the workplace - possessing unique, transferrable skills and contributing to a diverse workforce. They are survivors who come to WoW highly motivated and grateful for the opportunity of a bright future in the U.S.

What are the benefits of a partnership?

Reliable Candidates

Applicants are pre-screened for qualifications and motivations, ensuring they are accountable & ready to work for a sustained period of time. WoW can also assist with necessary documentation and orientation procedures.

Overcoming Barriers

Because English is a barrier and the application process is increasingly digital, newcomers to the US find it difficult to make an initial introduction and understand the parameters of onboarding and position descriptions. WoW acts as a bridge between amazing women and businesses looking for employees to arrange application materials, interviews, and new hire paperwork. 

Lower Turnover

Individual job-readiness training can be provided along with assistance communicating needs or navigating conflicts, should they arise.

Tax Credits

Providing employment to certain WoW clients may qualify you for Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC).

Community Recognition

Partners are recognized on media outlets, at regular conferences, speaking events, & press releases.
