To celebrate the Tampa Bay Women in Leadership Symposium, we will be part of Your Hour, Her Power®, which is inspired by the belief that when a woman has access to opportunities that can change her life, she becomes powerful beyond measure. By giving the equivalent of just one hour of your pay, you give a Dress for Success woman access to programs, services, and tools that will help her achieve economic advancement.
Additionally, we encourage all attendees who are willing and able to donate your new or nearly-new women’s attire to help get more women back to work or make a financial contribution to help women secure, retain and develop their professional careers.
The donation drive will take place on March 22nd from 10:00am-2:00pm
