How you can stand up for women in WNY
The job offer should have been good news, but Lena felt a pit in her stomach when she read the offer letter. 

Lena was about to complete her Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) program and her new job expected her to pay for an expensive certification exam. She couldn’t afford it and thought she would have to turn down the job, abandoning her dream of becoming a nurse. 

Through our "From Education to Employment" program, we connected Lena and all her classmates with scholarships so they could jump-start their new careers. 

Certification in hand, Lena accepted the job with a smile on her face.

You can ensure women like Lena continue to have the opportunity to earn, learn, and lead by giving in support of the WNY Women's Foundation today!
