Whether faced with caregiving responsibilities, chronic under- and unemployment or the impact of a changing economy, women that turn to Dress for Success have one thing in common: the desire to overcome barriers that hinder their ability to secure employment, become financially independent and achieve success on their own terms.
“Every woman has the potential to achieve self-defined success when she’s equipped with the necessary tools, support, and self-assurance to do so,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide.
#DFSPowerPiece celebrates the moment a woman puts on her power piece and finds the confidence to start her journey towards upward mobility.
“Our clients’ first interaction with us — when they’re suited and their transformation begins because they feel their best and ready to pursue their dreams — is where the magic of all that we do happens. That is what makes #DFSPowerPiece special,” continued Gordon.
