On the heels of last month’s release of “Closing the Gender Gap”, our report defining the scope of the problem and how to take action, the launch of online community WCT Connect marks the next phase of our commitment to achieving gender equality in communications, media and technology.
WCT Connect is a national community for women to get connected to opportunities and tools to progress in their careers. It empowers women by providing real-time mentorship opportunities, a safe space for Q&A, a curated job board and up to the minute professional development resources powered by WCT and the community.
Organizations have approached WCT in the past for help with hiring more women and the platform will not only help workplaces do just that, but also create a clearer path for them to:
- attract and retain more female talent
- connect female employees to career development
- empower male employees to be actively engaged in the solution
- find female board members and expert contributors
Empowering men to be part of the solution
WCT Connect is not only a place for women to continue the conversations that matter, but also a community for men and women to ask each other important questions and collaborate for change.
