Dress for Success
Helping working women succeed in style
For many women, reentering the workforce or trying to climb the ladder to success can be problematic if the attire needed to land the job, or keep the job, falls short. That’s where Dress for Success steps in. Since 1997, this organization has been helping women achieve economic success by providing professional attire, as well as a network of support and development tools that are needed in today’s workplace. Although the organization got its start in the United States, it has since expanded to nearly 160 cities in 29 countries.
“Each year, Dress for Success reaches more than 59,000 women in the U.S. alone,” says Patricia Steele, vice presi
dent, communications, for Dress for Success Worldwide.
The organization relies on the help of 25,000 volunteers, along with donations of clothing, accessories and shoes, as well as monetary contributions to provide the variety of services offered by the group. For more information and for drop-off locations, visit swflorida.dressforsuccess.org.
Dress for Success supplies workappropriate clothing for women seeking to land a job and then keep it.
