Dress for Success is a global not-for-profit organisation offering services designed to help disadvantaged women find jobs and remain employed.
The mission of Dress for Success is to “promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.”
Since June 2008, over 100 active volunteers have assisted over 2,000 women from across the Greater Brisbane area. Nearly 600 clients were seen in 2010 and 800 clients in 2011.
We count on the support of individuals and corporations to operate the Dress for Success Brisbane programs and continue helping disadvantaged women become independent and self-sufficient.
