Making an impact with WE NYC
Public Works is proud to share the impact report we developed in support of Women Entrepreneurship NYC (WE NYC), an NYC Department of Small Business Services initiative that connects women entrepreneurs to resources and support to start and grow thriving businesses. The report, Unlocking the Power of Women Entrepreneurs: The Influence of the WE NYC Initiative, measures the impact of WE NYC programs on women entrepreneurs in NYC during the initiative’s first five years. Our analysis found that, since its founding, the initiative has served nearly 17,000 women, amplifying the benefit of continued investments in women’s entrepreneurship in NYC.
What We’re Doing
Calling All Queens Residents: What can your library do for you?
We are working with the Queens Public Library (QPL) on strategies to expand their adult basic education and workforce development services. QPL and Public Works want to learn from you, Queens resident, about how you’ve used the library during the pandemic and what additional services you are seeking. Make your voice heard by completing our short survey by April 23rd. The survey is available in Spanish, Chinese, Bengali, and Korean.
Celebrating our network of women-led firms
Women’s History Month may have ended, but we’re always celebrating the incredible network of women-led firms that support and inspire Public Works. These organizations have helped us develop into the firm it is today through their support, advice, or leadership in their fields. We are immensely grateful for the firms that are our partners.
Unpacking the layers of COVID-19 stimulus
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act is working its way into your community, promising needed economic relief. While decisions are still being made by local governments about where and how this aid will reach the public, we dissected the bill’s potential impact on New York State and City. Our analysis includes an infographic on the evolution of the COVID-19 relief funding, as well as strategies for how state and city governments can use funds to stimulate local economies and promote equitable economic recovery.
