WHAT? A "how to get the job" program hosted by career coaches and employment experts, covering topics like resume writing, where to find employment, networking, and more.
WHEN? WorkPro sessions are held twice a week from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.
WHERE? In consideration of the pandemic and the current state of public health, sessions are held virtually on Zoom. Participants are provided with session links after signing up.
WHO? This program is intended for Arab women based in Waterloo Region or Guelph who are struggling to find employment in Canada or who would simply like some tips as they pursue their professional lives.
WHY? Many Arab women, particularly refugees, immigrants, and newcomers, struggle to find employment whether due to a lack of "Canadian experience", language barriers, or not knowing where to look. CAWA aims to bridge these gaps and help women along their journey of becoming productive members of Canadian society and unlocking their full potential in the workforce.
