Sister of Nontraditional Employment for Women Institutionalizing nontraditional employment focuses the workforce development and welfare systems on what they should be doing-moving families out of poverty by training women for self-sufficiency wage jobs with a future.

Nontraditional employment for women is one high-wage option that can enable families to move out of poverty.
