You only get one chance to make a first impression. When a woman has a good job and financial security, it can change the course of her life. Dress for Success is a non-profit organization that is all about helping women achieve their full professional potential, by giving them the tools and confidence to gain employment. We live in uncertain economic times. This organization helps disadvantaged women not only polish their skills for job interviews, but they provide them with office-appropriate clothing and programs to help guide them back into the working world. Dress for Success has been able to reach more than 650,000 women across the world. Organizations like The Sophisticates and makeup artist Bobbi Brown have stepped up to help women in need as Dress for Success sponsors.
Enter The Sophisticates Women's Social and Networking Group. They teach Vision Board Workshops to help women focus in on their goals, as well as Social Media Training for today's changing internet climate. They believe the more you give, the more you get back. Their goal is to empower women across the nation, one woman at a time. Their book, The Sophisticates Guide to Life, out February 2013 is a tool to help women live to their fullest potential and includes business skill tips as well as fashion do's and don'ts.
Famed makeup artist Bobbi Brown is also a Dress for Success sponsor. According to Bobbi Brown cosmetics, "As a makeup artist, Bobbi Brown knows all too well how much a woman’s appearance can be tied up with her self-worth. And for many disadvantaged women reentering the work force, it’s increasingly hard to look the part. Since 2000, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has worked with Dress for Success to help women-in-need get their independence and self-esteem back. Dress for Success provides its clients with interview suits and career development advice. Afterwards, every client receives a one-on-one beauty lesson and bag of makeup essentials from a volunteering Bobbi Brown makeup artist."
Celebrate the advancement of women and motivate them to achieve their highest potential in 2013!
