Career Ready Fellowship
Pathways for Equity Program: unlocking career pathways for women impacted by the criminal legal system
Career Ready Fellowship is industry specific with employers in target cities and states. We form partnerships with businesses that are interested in candidates to fill open positions, participate in industry apprenticeships, or who are interested in creating a customized P4E Fellowship. When we confirm a partnership with an employer, we recruit women for the Career Ready Fellowship Track based on the city and state where the employer is located. Women in the Career Ready Fellowship Track make a 12-month commitment that includes 3-months of weekly workshops, a continuing education scholarship, mentoring, and career transition support.
The Career Ready Fellowship Track REQUIRES a program application and the selection of program participants is based on the following eligibility criteria plus an interview and assessment.
