UW-Green Bay’s Institute for Women’s Leadership received a $10,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation to create and fund a Workforce Development Certificate. The grant will enable one hundred candidates to earn a certificate at no cost.

The Workforce Development Certificate offers a pathway for displaced, underemployed or underserved employees to upskill to meet changing market dynamics. The certificate can also be recommended by HR professionals and other recruiting entities for entry level employees, employees in transition or workers reentering the workforce after unemployment or a gap in work history to jumpstart their productivity.

The AT&T Foundation grant will also make possible the creation of marketing materials to broaden the reach of the certificate in order to expand access to additional populations, such as women, women of color and low-income workers. All materials will be available in a printed format to ensure those without internet capabilities can still receive information about the certificate.
