Elizabeth M. Miller, WERC Executive Director, Recognized As One Of The "Inspiring Women Of The Capital Region"
Elizabeth M. Miller, Executive Director of the Capital District Women’s Employment & Resource Center (WERC), was recently recognized by News10ABC as one of the “Inspiring Women of the Capital Region”. “Inspiring Women” is a featured news series that is sharing the stories of 20 local women who are each making a positive impact in our area. One woman per day is profiled during local newscasts through the month of November.
The women being recognized are from all walks of life, doing incredible things, from improving our health and well-being to enhancing our quality of life to creating opportunities and opening doors for others.
News10’s reporter Noel McLaren interviewed Elizabeth (Beth) about helping displaced homemakers and other women looking to get back in the workforce after a life-changing event like a divorce. “A displaced homemaker is just a woman who has a gap in her work history,” says Miller. “She’s got the background and education and the experience, the work ethic to go to work. It’s just a matter of finding where those jobs are, and the opportunities that are available for her.”
Beth views this acknowledgement as a chance to get the word out about WERC. “I get everything I need from the women. I don’t need to be highlighted,” she declares. “I need the awareness of WERC, and what we do. Hopefully we can reach a woman that could use our services.”
