Mission Statement To assist women in raising their self-esteem and achieving economic independence through sustained employment. WEN's vision is to advance positive change in the lives of women, their families and the community, one woman at a time.
Background Statement

In 2016, Women's Employment Network (WEN) celebrated 30 years of bringing positive change to the lives of women in the Kansas City metropolitan area, with a mission of assisting women in raising their self-esteem and achieving economic independence through sustained employment. WEN's strategic approach promotes the overall economic wellness of clients, focuses on helping them to build pathways for securing livable-wage jobs, and provides credit-building tools and financial education; together, this education leads our clients toward long-term financial stability. While WEN's activities have always been centered around helping women find work, there's more to economic wellness than just employment. Over the past several years, Women's Employment Network (WEN) has made significant strides in helping women in the Kansas City metro area become financially literate, take control of their budgets and start their own businesses. These strides can, in part, be attributed to the strength of the OneKC for Women alliance that was created in 2009. The alliance brought together the Women's Employment Network, Women's Capital Connection (WCC) and Women's Business Center (WBC) to create an umbrella organization wherein women all across the region could access resources needed to advance their financial success. 

In September 2014, WEN co-authored, along with the Library, a request for national funding from the FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) Foundation and the American Library Association. This grant partnership funds efforts to provide financial education and related resources to residents of three low-income areas that have significant financial instability. WEN takes the lead in delivering financial workshops through the Kansas City Public Library system.

WEN operates on a fiscal year from July 1st through June 30th and is led by an active 15-member board of directors composed of experienced business people and community volunteers. WEN provides social support services, referrals, training and financial coaching to help women and families who depend upon them.
Impact Statement

WEN is proud to work with economically disadvantaged Kansas City women in their efforts to establish financial stability through ongoing employment. WEN promotes the overall economic wellness of women in Kansas City and focuses on helping clients secure livable-wage jobs as well as providing credit-building tools and financial education.

  • WEN's 2016-2017 fiscal year saw major growth both in terms of fundraising and programming. The $425,000 grants goal was exceeded by over $23,000, and the Annual Luncheon raised $381,970 and was the most successful Luncheon in the organization's 30 years of existence
  • 185 new jobs were reported from graduates of WEN's Signature Five-Week Program.
  • 662 client participated in employment related services.
  • The Financial Education and Credit Building program served 203 clients.
  • 850 people attended workshops.
  • WEN program staff handled an average of 131 clients per month.
  • 247 employment referrals.
Needs Statement

WEN’s most pressing needs to help us better serve our clients are the following:

  • Funding to support our Employment Preparation and Career Transition Training Program, our core program and the heart of our mission. Our 2016-17 program budget is $790,024.
  • Funding to support the Financial Coaching and Credit Building Program, a successful offering that promotes the overall financial wellness of WEN's clients.
  • Human Resource professionals from local corporations to volunteer and assist WEN clients with resume development / writing as well as to help WEN clients practice their interviewing techniques with mock interview sessions and to teach workshops on personal development and workplace topics.
  • Padfolios, bus passes (31 day: RideKC), QuikTrip gas cards ($10-$20), flash drives (2GB or less), gift cards to professional clothing stores (Kohl's, Lane Bryant, Catherine's Macy's), and gently used professional, current professional clothing in good condition.These donations fill an area of need and make it possible for all of WEN's clients to look polished when interviewing for jobs.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

 The Women's Employment Network (WEN) celebrated 30 years in 2016, serving women from all socio-economic backgrounds in our metropolitan Kansas City area. Our mission remains consistent in providing a holistic approach to serving our clients as they seek financial self-sufficiency. Historically, challenges and barriers remain much the same for women. Pay gaps, sustainable wages, child care costs and transportation costs are systemic barriers to success for the clients we serve. Our clients are in search of the resources to help them overcome these barriers to make personal and professional positive changes in their lives, as well as positive impact on their families.

In 2009, WEN formed a community alliance with other organizations aligned with our mission. The OneKC for Women alliance was formed with the Women's Business Center (WBC) and Women's Capital Connection (WCC). Subsequently, the WE-Lend micro loan program has been added to the alliance. This alliance allows the highest quality model of financial success through job placement, credit/financial health, aspirations to self-employment and small business ownership, micro lending and equity funding.

WEN also participates in a community strategy as a LISC Financial Opportunity Center, with emphasis on financial coaching as a model improving sustainable outcomes for our clients. WEN takes the lead in delivering financial workshops through the Kansas City Public Library system as a partner with FINRA that broadens our outreach to the general public.

Additional community partners such as domestic violence shelters, Operation Breakthrough and Amethyst Place, just to name a few, continue to seek our counsel and inclusion in addressing the barriers of their clients. Strong partnerships will serve women in our community with less redundancy and confusion in the market and promote new synergies. With a unified message profiling the strength of successful women in our region, we will continue to empower our clients as they grow in their careers and economic stability -- and give prospective clients the courage to take a leap of faith and explore WEN as a place of care and compassion.

Programs
Description

The Employment Preparation and Career Transition Training Program is WEN's longest-running program, a five-week-long intensive training curriculum designed to provide women with a strong foundation and an action-plan for success. It is offered eight times every year and runs Monday-Friday to help women transition back into a workforce schedule.

This program includes Career Exploration, where women identify their skills and possible careers; Essential Job Tools, where women create polished resumes and cover letters; Interview Strategies, where women receive an interview-appropriate suit and participate in mock interviews; and Job Search Resources, where women learn how to search and apply for jobs.

In addition, clients participate in supplemental workshops that build their professional and personal skills as they prepare to enter the workforce. Further support is provided by WEN's licensed social worker, who addresses client need outside of employment, and WEN's Financial Coach.

Long-Term Success

Through structured and personalized career guidance, WEN creates positive change in the lives of women who struggle with social, economic and educational barriers to employment. WEN's efforts help women discover their own abilities, gain employment and build a better future.

Long-term success resulting from this program involves women building self-sufficiency and overcoming poverty. A self-sufficient program graduate will have addressed barriers to employment and sought resources to address these barriers, gained sustainable employment and set financial goals that prepare them for a stable future.

Program Success Monitored By

While Women's Employment Network staff are consistently reminded of the impact of this program by client feedback and success stories, it is essential that client outcomes are tracked and evaluated to give a broad and complete perspective of WEN's program results. WEN collects data through intake forms and monthly program statistical summaries, with all information is entered into Biz-Trakker, a client management system, allowing staff to create frequent reports, examine data and determine both areas of strength and need.

WEN's Employment Services Representative tracks the progress of women who successfully complete the program for at least one year by following up with graduates and verifying employment every 30 days for 12 months.

Examples of Program Success

In the 2015-2016 program year WEN served on average 136 women each month, and 455 new clients over the course of the year. Enrollment numbers for the signature program were lower than anticipated at 129 women, but the graduation rate for the program has increased. In 2015-2016, 80% of participants completed the program, which is an increase over 61% graduation in 2012-2013 and 47% graduation in 2011-2012. 

WEN clients come from diverse backgrounds, but all exit the program with increased confidence. One client reflects:

"After four years of being a caregiver to family members, getting back into the workforce seemed a little scary. I can’t say enough about the staff at WEN. They are all so knowledgeable and supportive and it means so much to know that they are always going to be there for me if I need them. That is such a great thing !" - Jayna

Description

WEN currently has 2 financial coaches on staff. While finding employment after being out of work for an extended period is critical to WEN clients, knowledge of money management is essential for ongoing success and economic security. Women work with WEN's Financial Coach who conducts an initial financial assessment and helps them determine steps necessary for them to regain control of their finances. The Financial Coach assists clients in building a budget and also reviews their credit reports, giving advice in how to address collection, past due payments and judgments. WEN is designated as a Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Financial Opportunity Center and all financial coaching services are conducted according to this nationally proven model.

Short-Term Success

Short-term outcomes for the previous program year are listed under the header "Examples of Program Success." Since this program is still in its infancy it is difficult to anticipate short-term client outcomes, but in 2015-2016, achieved the following outcomes:

  • 125 clients received financial services
  • 53 increased their credit score
  • 13 accessed a credit building tool
  • 44 decreased their number of outstanding collections
  • 25 increased their net worth
  • 24 increased their net income
Long-Term Success

Long-term success will be evidenced by clients paying off their debts and building healthy credit. LISC reports that in their Financial Opportunity Center network, 50% of clients see improvements in their net income. WEN hopes to exceed this standard long-term.

Program Success Monitored By

The Financial Coach is responsible for compiling data that reflects both clients' financial profile at intake, as well as their progress in building credit as time goes on. While the Financial Coach meets with clients monthly, it can take many months to see any improvement in one's credit score. For this reason, progress is tracked on a biannual basis through pulling client credit reports, and will include the client's credit score, number of active lines of credit, number of accounts currently in collection, and total amount of debt held.

Outcome tracking abilities have increased since WEN became a designated LISC Financial Opportunity Center in November 2013. As an FOC, WEN is required to enter client data into the Efforts to Outcomes database. This captures a detailed picture of client finances, income, and employment information. While at this time mainly used to track outcomes related to WEN’s financial coaching, Efforts to Outcomes is intended to track clients over a longer period than Biz-Tracker, and will ultimately allow WEN to track client progress for multiple years.
Examples of Program Success

In the 2015-16 program year, WEN provided Financial Coaching and Credit Building services to 125 clients, 53 increasing their credit score, 13 accessing a credit building tool, 44 decreasing their outstanding collections and 24 increasing net worth.

Tracy first met with WEN's Financial Coach because she and her four children were desperate to move out of a family member's house into one of their own. The Financial Coach helped Tracy make a credit action plan and began dispute inaccurate information on her credit report. Within a year, by finding employment and focusing on financial goals Tracy was able to achieve her goal and move her children into a rental townhome.

In just over a year, Tracy has accomplished amazing things. Her past due debt has been cut in half, and she has also increased her credit score over 100 points by disputing inaccurate information, paying off debts, and paying her car loan and student loan on time every month.

CEO Comments

Employers continue to alter hiring practices that can impact the way clients look for employment. Through our Employment Specialist, who works directly with the human resource department to provide job leads to our clients, we hope to be current on these changes. Staying on top of social media networks as sources of qualified candidates for employers, the vast number of applications employers are receiving and financial health of a candidate can be conditions that our clients must be familiar with.

Succession planning for our curriculum is a priority and challenging in anticipation of employer and workforce changes. Some changes are based on the use of technology, other changes on abundance of high-quality skill sets of the unemployed. For our low to moderate income client with high school diploma or GED, options can be less favorable. Using technology with blended learning modules has been our focus, and it has been challenging to address the needs of the unskilled computer literate client. Our focus continues to be on the development of modules that can address a vast skill set.

Collaborations

Women's Employment Network has a number of strategic partnerships with the intention of enhancing the services offered and avoiding the duplication of efforts in the Kansas City area. WEN's formation of the OneKC for Women Alliance in 2009 has been extremely successful, increasing the range of resources available to WEN's clients. At the same time, WEN was influential in bringing the St. Louis microlender Justine Petersen to Kansas City; they are housed at WEN and have awarded more than $3.0 million in microloans over 200 small businesses in Kansas City.  In 2014, the Women's Business Center also received a national grant providing $100k seed funding for an additional micro loan start-up.  Eventually, the creation of this program may leverage federal loan pools from the U.S. Small Business Administration and the U.S. Treasure Department of $5 - $10 million dollars.

In 2014 WEN joined Operation Breakthrough and Amethyst Place in the "100 Jobs for 100 Moms" initiative, which helps women overcome employment barriers and develop skills that will lead to sustainable employment and economic self-sufficiency. As part of this partnership, WEN provides regular workshops on job searching, workplace etiquette and budgeting. In less than two years, participating companies have increased and more than 13 single mothers have achieved employment, with plans for expansion underway.

WEN's most recent collaboration is a financial literacy initiative with the Kansas City Public Library. The strategy is to serve those in need of financial at three branches which primarily serve those living in poverty. Finally, WEN has ongoing referral partner relationships with a number of local agencies including the Rose Brooks Center, New House, Safe Haven, Hope House, the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Blue Hills Community Center and many others. Staff has reached out to the various shelters in an attempt to educate the clientele on the availability of WEN and the financial coaching, as well as to present mini-workshops. WEN has found that, with the domestic violence/substance abuse organizations, the women are still in "crisis mode" and are not yet ready for the programs that WEN provides. Once the women are stable and out of a crisis situation, the women have great success at WEN.

Organization Comments The Women's Employment Network continues to remain in a strong cash position, as well as add to our Board Designated Fund in support of our sustainability for years to come. We have maintained a conservative budget over the past five years, balanced our budget each year and increased between 3-5%. This has been our intentional effort to ensure market fluctuations that might decrease revenues for some of our funders does not put our organization in jeopardy. Our Finance Committee remains diligent in monitoring our cash flow and sources of revenue in concert with our Development Committee and the full board of directors. We are appreciative of the confidence our funders and how they relate to us and will continue to serve women in our community as our core mission.
