International Women's Day is 8 March, 2024

Empower Hour 2024 is coming up!

This International Women’s Day (8 March) and the month of March, Dress for Success is on a mission to empower more than 750 women to face their job search with the confidence, clothing, and tools to get hired.

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 and get involved today to count her in to meaningful employment, a livable wage, and a brighter future.

Our community says it best: one hour in a Dress for Success fitting room is an hour that can transform a woman’s outcome.

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.
