Today, Smart Works released their inaugural Smart Works Female Unemployment Index – a report that examines the challenges women face when looking for work, from the moment they begin the search to the life changing impact of having a job. Since 2019, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex has been Patron and last year, The Archewell Foundation announced it would provide the financial support to conduct this robust study.
“Anyone who has received a wage packet in their lifetime understands the power of employment, the freedom it provides, the opportunities it opens and above all, the person it enables you to become. Too often our clients come to us after months or years of trying and failing to secure employment, lacking confidence. We know the impact that unemployment is having on women’s lives and we know how critical they can be to our national economic success. We need to find a way forward, listening to what women need to thrive when in an interview situation and be happy and successful in their careers.” – Kate Stephens, Smart Works CEO
