PARTNERS MAKE IT POSSIBLE
Collaborate with Ursuline’s Institute to continue the advancement of diverse women in leadership, career, and holistic development.
Supporting women in a meaningful way takes a strong community and a commitment to working together. It also requires a real desire to see things change for the better. We’re making progress but it’s not something we can do alone.
Become an Institute Corporate Subscriber
Empower your workforce and show women you support them. It goes a long way towards retaining employees, maintaining a diverse workforce, and upholding your reputation as a great employer.
Help your female employees succeed, personally and professionally
With the pandemic, women’s careers have taken a huge hit: many are torn between the responsibilities of work and family, and are scaling back or stepping away from their careers in record numbers. Mothers who are reducing their work hours and leaving the labor force outright add up to $64.5B a year in lost wages and economic activity. Women of color have also been impacted particularly hard.
What this struggle means is that a large percentage of your workforce is likely burned out, disengaged and not producing at their full potential. But it’s not a lost cause: Showing women you support them goes a long way towards retaining employees, maintaining a diverse workforce, and upholding your reputation as a socially responsible employer committed to the “big picture.”
As a corporate subscriber, you will provide the women in your organization with access to resources that create a rich, inclusive environment of continuous learning and positive growth for all women, regardless of background or life stage.
The Institute offers a 360°approach that empowers women to flourish in all aspects of our lives and responds to the many challenges women face. We provide support for making intentional decisions and engaging in a more balanced and productive personal and professional life.
Your support will help get us there.
We’re looking for women-focused organizations, corporate and educational partners, researchers, trainers, and coaches to help us deliver innovative, lifelong learning for all women. If you’re as excited as we are about what the Institute for Women, Wellness and Work is looking to accomplish, tell us more below.
FRIENDS AND COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Help us help all women
Much of the work we do has been enabled by donors and partners who are aligned with our vision and see the benefit of giving women access to these unique programs. To ensure accessibility for women from all backgrounds, their support has enabled us to offer some programs at no cost, with funding prioritized to support women of color, those who are under-represented in their field, or unemployed due to COVID-19 and ongoing challenges related to the pandemic.
Thanks to these donors and partners, the Institute is building on the College’s strong track record of accessibility. In fact, a new national study on the upward mobility of college graduates ranks Ursuline College #1 for its record of moving low-income students into higher income groups. We think everyone should be able to access lifelong learning.
