§ 10-c. Workforce guidance and information for women initiative. 1.
The department shall provide guidance to local workforce investment
boards and staff, to enable them to better educate and inform both women
and men about higher paying jobs and careers including jobs
traditionally dominated by men. Such guidance shall promote program
services for job seekers that provide:

women and men to seek employment in such jobs;

(c) referrals to employers offering such jobs; and

(d) current local labor market information regarding the gender wage
gap and specific self-sufficiency rates for families living and working
in that local labor market.

2. The commissioner shall prepare and submit to the governor, the
temporary president of the senate, and the speaker of the assembly an
annual evaluation report of the initiative no later than January first,
two thousand eighteen, and every year thereafter. The report shall
include:

(a) how many women were referred to counseling or skills development
and training for jobs and careers that offer high earning potential,
including jobs traditionally dominated by men;

(b) how many women were referred to such jobs;

(c) the ratio of women to men in such jobs and any change in that
ratio from the previous year; and

(d) any other information the commissioner deems relevant.
