News from a Fellow Tennessee Woman In Green

Here is some news from Margo Farnsworth, Senior Research Consultant for the Cumberland River Compact:

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau recently selected Public Policy Associates Inc. based in Lansing, Michigan and the Wider Opportunities to Women (WOW) nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C. to receive a $265,690 award to develop a guide that increases women’s access to the green jobs sector nationwide. The publication, “A Woman’s Guide to Green Jobs,” will provide information on hiring needs, training, and entrepreneurship opportunities in green industries and will be available both in hard copy and online. The goal of the publication is to connect women with best practices and support services to facilitate success in the workplace. The publication is expected to become available in the spring of 2010.   http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/wb/wb20091200.htm
