About Us

Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) prepares, trains, and places women in careers in the skilled construction, utility, and maintenance trades, helping women achieve economic independence and a secure future.

Since 1978, NEW has been a groundbreaking model that works for women and for New York City. NEW places and supports low-income women in trades careers through advanced training programs, an expanded employer base, and a growing number of opportunities available to women through those employers.

NEW’s goal is to increase the number of women employed in trade careers, specifically those that offer strong wages, benefits, training and potential for advancement. These career paths have been historically less accessible to women but offer the opportunity to fundamentally transform one’s income and wealth. NEW focuses on placing and retaining graduates with New York City trade unions, public utilities, transportation authorities, and building operations companies. NEW’s objective is to continue to deepen efforts to train and prepare women for careers that provide sustainable financial support and stability for themselves and their families.
