We are so excited and proud to have been a part of establishing a pioneering employment program, The Encoreship. The Encoreship provides employment and upskilling for women who are facing challenges re-entering the workforce after an extended period away from work – no matter the reason.
2020 was a difficult year for many. When it comes to workplace participation, emerging data suggests women have been disproportionately affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic with 61% of job losses in Australia experienced by women. Around half of the women who found themselves out of work, have dropped out of the workplace completely due to a myriad of reasons.
This program is a 3-month paid placement in DISSH, designed to upskill, build confidence, create connections and set women up for their future aspirations. We have filled our 2021 position and are excited to announce we will be bringing The Encoreship back in 2022. Stay tuned for more.
