The Dress for Success Annual Luncheon: Going Places, Going Strong is a gathering to celebrate the success of our women, and the power of our mission. Our biggest and most anticipated event of the year, we’ll be highlighting the principles at the core of Dress for Success, the impact of stylish presentation and the power of networking to develop your career.
Our speakers, Tamika Maria Price and Jen Tadin embody Dress for Success’ ideal of “going places, going strong.”
