Participants will graduate with the tools, resources, and know-how to land economically viable work outside of the sex industry. Upon completion of the program participants will have the opportunity to connect with exclusive career placement opportunities with reputable and socially responsible companies.

Well-being through
economic empowerment.

Due to the commercial sex industry’s subversive nature, accurate and up-to-date statistics are difficult to obtain.

However, a large global study recently found that 89% of women in the commercial sex industry want to leave but see no other options for survival.

When alternative employment opportunities and relevant training are available, women are able to safely exit the industry and engage in long-term healing.

ELLA WORKS Foundation President, Nicole Williams, is using her deep career expertise to create a more enticing and effective pathway for a woman to support herself and chart a new course for her life.
