Creating New On-ramps for RTP Women
RTP represents a wealth of professional female talent and a dynamic environment of leading-edge, innovative companies. According to the RTP Foundation, nearly 1 in 5 members of the RTP community holds a graduate degree. Voted the #1 place to live and work by Forbes in 2014,Â thriving RTP companies are relocating talent from other states, often bringing trailing spouses who want to re-enter the workforce but lack the connections and current technical and professional skills to confidently and successfully find employment.
â€śPartnering with reacHIRE was a win win,â€ť said reacHIRE graduate Cathy Taylor. â€śreacHIRE reignited my confidence and skills and helped me overcome the largest hurdle of explaining to employers how a career gap need not get in the way.
