Powered by New York City Economic Development Corporation, Women.NYC is an initiative that connects women to jobs and businesses of the future.

High-growth sectors including tech, offshore wind, the green economy, and life sciences will create tens of thousands of good jobs in the coming years—and Women.NYC aims to introduce women to the opportunities for employment and business creation that these booming sectors afford.

From education to training to entrepreneurial offerings, Women.NYC is your path to connect to a thriving career in an industry with a big future in New York City—no matter where you are now. And if you're already in tech, renewable energy, climate tech, or life sciences, Women.NYC is here to help you move forward.

The Women.NYC Network

Launching in April 2023, The Women.NYC Network is a new hub where you can plug into a network of pros in high-growth sectors including tech, life sciences, offshore wind, and climate tech. These are priority sectors in New York City where talent is needed and opportunity abounds, for members of the workforce and entrepreneurs alike.

At The Women.NYC Network, you can learn more about our priority growth sectors by attending our events, joining our Power Circles, or meeting 1:1 with leaders who can help you on your journey.
