Path Forward is a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower people to restart their careers after time spent focused on caregiving. Read our 2021 Annual Report here.

Our program changes the culture of teams and companies to create an environment where returning professionals can thrive. These life-changing opportunities have had a tremendous impact on the lives of over 600 returners, 80% of whom were able to secure ongoing employment at the companies where they completed their returnship. Read some of their stories here

Now, more than 2 years into the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission is more relevant than ever before. Women were already 12 times more likely than men to be out of the workforce for caregiving. The pandemic has devastated workforce participation rates, forcing nearly 3 million caregivers, primarily women, to leave their jobs. We have only just begun to imagine the lasting impact this will have on caregivers as they look to reenter the workforce. As we embark on this post-pandemic journey, our work at Path Forward has only just begun.

When you donate to Path Forward you are helping us to empower returners, support them throughout their returnships, create new employment opportunities, and provide return-to-work advice through our blog, newsletter, and events. Your gift will help change lives, and we are so incredibly grateful!
