Women in the Workplace
“Women in the Workplace” is a virtual roundtable and marketplace event presented by The Women’s Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI) in partnership with Invest Atlanta, WorkSource Atlanta, The Mayor’s Office of International Affairs (MOIA) and One Atlanta.
Our agency consortium identifies, mobilizes and spotlights the very best partner solutions targeting gaps in Atlanta’s underserved communities made evident by the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Women in the Workplace” initiative addresses five (5) main topics:
- Economic Mobility presented by WorkSource Atlanta
- Mental Health presented by One Atlanta
- Entrepreneurship presented by the Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative (WEI)
- Families & Childcare presented by the Mayor's Office of International Affairs (MOIA)
- Capital Investment & Resource Allotment presented by Invest Atlanta
The initiative kicked off September 2021 with a full week of events highlighting citywide programs plus resources specific to women. Monthly programming continues throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring culminating with Women’s History Month, March 2022. Additional roundtables and marketplace resources will be anchored by national initiatives and coordinated with local partners to continue serving women throughout The City of Atlanta.
