One hour can change her life.
International Women's Day is 8 March, 2024
Empower Hour 2024 is coming up!
Dress for Success services in Australia are in more demand than ever before. With women bearing the brunt of the cost of living and housing crises, the number of women facing hardship is increasing rapidly.
One hour in a Dress for Success fitting room is an hour that can transform a woman’s outcome.
This International Women’s Day, your support will help a vulnerable woman gain the skills and confidence she needs to enter or re-enter the workforce. Donate today, and count her in to meaningful employment, a livable wage, and a brighter future.
Thanks to our Empower Hour supporters in 2023, Dress for Success supported an incredible additional 750 women in Australia to face their job search with the confidence, clothing, and tools to get hired.

The impact of your donation
Dress for Success works to bridge the gap for vulnerable women by addressing unconscious bias and creating fairness and equality for jobseekers who identify as female; instilling confidence, building resilience, and restoring dignity to not only ‘get the job’ but to ‘thrive in the job’.
