Rural Dynamics - Women's Foundation of Montana
The project aims to increase economic security of Montana women whose income is now ranked 41st in the nation, moving them out of poverty and reducing the gender pay gap of 73 cents to a man's dollar. The Women’s Foundation of Montana (WFM) works to advance women’s independence and create a brighter future for girls. The VISTA will build awareness of the Women’s Foundation of Montana and support Powerhouse Montana, an initiative of WFM that connects over 600 members to opportunities and mentors across Montana. They will increase awareness of WFM’s work and provide resources to help Montana women and girls thrive.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will build capacity for a program that helps women negotiate for better wages, successfully identify and apply for jobs, start businesses, and much more. The project will serve all Montana women, including veterans and at-risk households, but with an emphasis on women in rural and tribal communities. This project will also track efforts to increase the number of women in higher paid non-traditional fields and in leadership positions. The VISTA will create a community outreach and education plan for PowerHouse small business owners to engage them in community solutions related to the care economy, access to health care, and access to capital. The VISTA will host at least 4 educational webinars on topics that affect Montana women and girls. They will also create a social media content calendar and assist with the monthly newsletter. Lastly, the VISTA will secure at least $3,000 in program support to help ensure the sustainability of the project.
