Who We Are
Launched in 2018, women.nyc is an ambitious program dedicated to ensuring New York City remains the greatest place in the world for women of all backgrounds, ages, abilities and identities to launch startups, run businesses, and advance their careers.
By leveraging all the tools the city has to offer and working with partners who share our mission to financially empower women, women.nyc is creating programs that have real impact.
From free tech classes and salary negotiation workshops to small business bootcamps and career pivot coaching, women.nyc is here to help all NYC women reach higher.
NewVenture 50+: Women.nyc has partnered with the NYC Dept. of Small Business Services to help women ages 50+ start their entrepreneurial journeys with this bootcamp series.
The Childcare Innovation Lab: In response to the pandemic’s catastrophic effect on working moms and families, women.nyc’s Childcare Innovation Lab works to reframe access to childcare as a core economic development issue, rather than a private family matter.
Ask For More: To help combat the salary gap, women.nyc has partnered with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to provide 10,000 women in NYC with free salary negotiation workshops, both online and in-person. Sign up for a workshop here.
