Verizon & Partners Launch Women’s CoLab, An Initiative Empowering Women

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Verizon and its partners announced the launch of Women’s CoLab, an initiative providing women with essential resources to help them achieve success in an increasingly digital economy, and assisting them to re-enter the workforce and realize their career ambitions. Women’s CoLab founding partners include A Effect, Accenture, Degreed, Ferrero, Mastercard, Harvard Business, Scary Mommy, The Achieve Institute, The Estée Lauder Companies, The Female Quotient, Walmart, UN Foundation, Watermark, and more. Women’s CoLab also offers a library of resources and peer-to-peer support for free to any user on WeAreWomensCoLab.com.

“We need women in the workforce. We need their diverse perspectives and backgrounds, at all levels and across all industries, and we can’t pursue real, lasting equality if we ask women to choose between having a career or managing their life. A recent survey we commissioned found that close to 60 percent of women who want to re-enter the workforce can’t afford the training to remain competitive. This is exacerbated by the fact that 72% of women are concerned about the difficulty of finding a job that matches their existing skillset. This is precisely the reason why I believe Women’s CoLab can play an important role in helping women advance and succeed,” stated Manon Brouillette, Chief Operating Officer, and Deputy CEO, Verizon Consumer.

Also, more content such as live Q&As, guest essays, workshops, and career insights from leading women will be added regularly to cover the most vital issues impacting women today. The initiative focuses on building a community of women, with interactive forums allowing for open conversation and consistent support between members and participants.
