The Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations (WANTO) Grant Program Announces a Free Women-Focused Virtual Job Fair!

Utica, NY – The Women in Apprenticeship and Nontraditional Occupations (WANTO) grant program is hosting a women-focused virtual job fair on November 3, 2021, from 11:00AM – 1:00PM. The goal of the job fair is to help women gain employment in nontraditional occupations, which is defined by the U.S. Department of Labor as any industry in which females make up 25% or less of the workforce.

The WANTO program, administered by the Workforce Development Board, Herkimer, Madison and Oneida Counties, Inc., focuses on helping women gain employment in nontraditional occupations primarily in the informational technology, advanced manufacturing, trades, agriculture, and transportation sectors.

“Nontraditional careers for women have a great deal of opportunity for women to grow and achieve self-sustainability,” says Stephanie Heiland, WANTO Project Director. “By providing women with training and helping to connect them to employers, WANTO hopes to create a more inclusive and equitable workforce.”

WANTO serves the following seventeen counties: Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Montgomery, Oneida, Onondaga, Otsego, Schoharie, St. Lawrence, Tioga, and Tompkins. Job seekers and employers throughout the entire 17-county region are invited to register.

The job fair is free to job seekers and employers on a user-friendly platform.
