Dress for Suc­cess

Helping work­ing women suc­ceed in style

RSWLiving - - In The Community -

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.

Dress for Suc­cess sup­plies workap­pro­pri­ate cloth­ing for women seek­ing to land a job and then keep it.
