Description: This program is intended to provide technical assistance (“TA”) to employers and labor unions to encourage employment of women in apprenticeable occupations and nontraditional occupations (“A/NTO”), specifically by: • Developing (establishing, expanding or enhancing) pre-apprenticeship or nontraditional skills training programs designed to prepare women for careers in A/NTO; • Providing ongoing orientations for employers, unions, and workers on creating a successful environment for women in A/NTO; and/or • Setting up support groups and facilitating networks for women in A/NTO, to improve their retention. Applicants may propose to provide technical assistance to support women’s participation and success in the full range of industries in which women are traditionally underrepresented or disproportionately concentrated in the lower-wage occupations. Such industries include but are not limited to: advanced manufacturing, energy, healthcare, information technology, and transportation.
