A few weeks ago, Strive Consulting’s Women In Technology (WIT) and Outreach Committee teamed up to host a clothing drive in our Chicago office to collect donations for Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization that promotes the economic independence of women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Through providing services such as suiting, workforce development programs, employment retention programs, financial heath programs, and leadership and civic responsibility initiatives, Dress for Success has helped thousands of women around the world.
Throughout the month of November, Strive employees collected their new or gently used women’s professional clothing and accessories that they no longer needed to donate to this great organization. To conclude the drive, we hosted all participants at the Strive Headquarters, and we ended up collecting over 200 articles of clothing and accessories to donate! We are very happy to be able to help out this organization during the holiday season!
