Project: Accelerate 2015

PANAWIC Detroit's 2015 Project: Accelerate begins Friday, May 1.
 
Project: Accelerate is a comprehensive immerse and exposure program designed to strategically expand opportunities ​ for women​ within and around construction and related industries.
 
This program was designed to build on, and/or introduce knowledge that would be value-added to a woman's upward trajectory in the workplace.
 
Participants experience personal and professional development with a concentration on facilitating opportunity and increasing one's industry knowledge. Our program welcomes entry level to CEO's, employed and unemployed, and has been proven to appeal to all levels of women in the industry, ​as well as those potentially interested in the industry. ​ It is a program that is proven to make a difference in the lives of all involved.​
 
Selection of participants and the successful completion of this project is based upon attitude, aptitude, and attendance. Each applicant fills out a simple personal profile, adds a paragraph of why they feel this program will benefit them, notes an understanding of requirements, submits to an interview, and ​may submit a letter of recommendation.
​​
We are currently in the planning stages for the 2015 PA class, and are seeking full-time participants and NAWIC Detroit Member One-Day attendees, as well as volunteers.​ Everyone involved will benefit from Project Accelerate.
 
Full-time participants attend six ​8-hour Friday sessions at various locations in SE Michigan, and one half-day wrap-up session. ​Our returning partner, Lawrence Technological University, hosts many sessions in Southfield. ​ There is no cost to full-time participants.
 
NAWIC Detroit Member One-Day attendees can attend individual half-day or full-day sessions at a nominal fee. ​ Member volunteers can attend two to three sessions at no charge.​
 
Volunteers are needed to help with training, set-up, and clean-up. ​ We are looking for all levels of expertise, and hope that you will consider making a difference in another woman's life in our industry today. We are very excited and hopeful that the 2015 ​year brings great things for all people involved in Project Accelerate.
