OUR MISSION

West Virginia Women Work is a statewide nonprofit organization that supports and advocates for the education, employment and economic equity for all women. We achieve this goal through a comprehensive program of recruitment, training, referrals, placements, networking, advocacy, retention activities and public workshops. 

While the nonprofit’s headquarters is in Morgantown, there are presently three active skilled trades training sites (Step-Up for Women) located in the state – North Central West Virginia (Morgantown), the Eastern Panhandle (Martinsburg) and Kanawha Valley (Charleston). This program boasts an 80% job placement rate with new graduates earning a minimum of $3 more per hour than a traditional job.
