The goal of the back to work initiative is to form a support group for women trying to join the workforce after a career break. We welcome people of varied interests from diverse fields and help them identify their strengths and weaknesses. We hope to instill confidence and self-esteem that women lose after being away from work for a long time. We plan to organize monthly coffee clubs where women can discuss their struggles, get advice on resume, cover letters and job interviews. We also aim to offer workshops and scholarships for courses to acquire skills that bridge the gap in their career and talk to various companies to sponsor ‘returnships’-internships for women trying to get back to work.
