Overview

Rung for Women aims to empower women to grow and achieve sustained independence through co-located and coordinated educational, professional, and economic resources.

The Evaluation Center is partnering with Rung for Women to develop an organization-level evaluation plan, as well as pillar evaluation plans. The Center will also provide expertise to support Rung’s program planning and performance management.

Project Description

Background

Rung for Women and its co-designers will provide services in four primary areas or “pillars”: 1) member support and coaching; 2) physical and mental well-being; 3) financial wellness and wealth-building; and 4) employment and career services.

The Rung for Women program will begin with a six-month immersive experience called Member Experience 101. During this time, members will work with a coach to define their career and personal goals and design their own personal approach for meeting those goals. After this experience, members will access career counseling, financial education and wellness classes at Rung for Women, as well as ongoing workshops and networking opportunities to support them on their path. To ensure members have the time and peace of mind to invest in themselves, Rung for Women will provide onsite child care, healthy eating options and health care services. The first cohort will start in March 2021.
