The Pink to Green Toolkit: Adding a Gender Lens to Green Jobs Training Programs

Posted by Ayreen Calimquim - On August 13, 2012 (EST)

Jobs for the Future has created a tool kit to provide resources support the recruitment, training, and retention of women in jobs in the green economy.

This toolkit can be used by program planners, managers, and frontline staff conducting outreach and assessment, training, case management, and job development to ensure that each stage of the employment process—from recruitment through retention—looks at how the workplace environment can be responsive to women of many backgrounds and how systems can be created or improved to address the barriers women face.

The materials can help build the capacity of organizations to attract women to programs providing education, training, and support services targeted to women’s needs, and to offer assistance that helps industry partners incorporate policies and practices supporting equity and diversity. The resources also can be used to build on and strengthen existing activities, customize strategies, establish new practices and policies, and deepen effectiveness at serving all participants in an equitable manner.
