They always say you should dress for the job you want. But what if you don’t have the means to? That’s where Dress for Success comes in. The Vancouver chapter alone served more than 2,000 disadvantaged women last year. And they did more than dress them for interviews; they provided career coaching, interview prep, resumé polishing — the works.
I stopped by the Vancouver chapter to meet with their marketing and sponsorship manager Christina Florencio and style a few mannequins for them. You know what kind of donations they need? Cash. ($30 a month will put one woman through the suite of Dress for Success programs.) And work-appropriate handbags.
A little while back The Anthology hosted a dinner in support of Dress for Success. It was such a fun night. Were you there?
