A little about Dress for Success: DFS is a registered Canadian Charity that helps low and no income women to transition into the workforce by providing professional attire. Each Dress for Success client receives a suit for her interviews and a small working wardrobe when she gets her job. The suits we give symbolize our faith in every woman’s ability to succeed.
The Dress for Success Vancouver Professional Women’s Group program then provides ongoing support to help our clients build a successful career.Former clients who have successfully returned to the workforce become members who meet monthly for a networking and education program. Monthly meetings focus on subjects such as the written and unwritten rules of the workplace, personal finance, communication, personal health and much more.
