This issue’s charity: Dress for Success

Why they’re crucial: The effects of poverty are long-lasting, and they’re particularly hard on women and their families. To improve their quality of life, it’s vital that every woman has the skills and confidence needed to find and keep a job. Since 1997, Dress for Success Worldwide has helped more than 850,000 women by providing a network of professional support, development tools and work attire. Women referred to Dress for Success are partnered with a staff member who helps them search for jobs, create resumes and prepare for interviews. The organization’s Suiting Program provides each client with a specially selected career suit, cosmetics, footwear and accessories. Dress for Success then provides clients who find work with a full week’s worth of professional attire.

What they do:



• Collect and distribute donated professional attire.
• Provide women looking for work with valuable professional training and coaching.
• Create a support network for recently employed women to help with professional and financial skills.
• Provide a 10-week intensive workshop series, including networking seminars and job search support, for participants in the organization’s Suiting Program who haven’t secured employment.
