Dress for Success Worldwide® – Central (DFSWWC) is seeking to expand its presence in Chicago and surrounding areas by bringing on a diverse group of individuals interested in community development and fundraising to join our newly developed Advisory Council.

Specifically, we are seeking:

  • Individuals who are committed and passionate about the mission of DFSWWC who possess experience and/or rooted interest in fundraising, entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, nonprofit law, curriculum development, and marketing or public relations. 
    • Seasoned DFSWWC volunteers and existing donors who would like to increase their engagement in local office activities. 
  • Also, as an organization seeking to serve the entire city, we want to include members of demographic groups underrepresented in the city of Chicago. 
    • Chicagoland residency is essential, though not required. 
  • Individuals with experience in building generosity networks that reach beyond circles of personal and professional acquaintances.

Organizer

Dress for Success Worldwide - Central

The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
 
Dress for Success Worldwide – Central serves job-ready women by referral only from Chicago non-profit organizations including domestic violence agencies, homeless shelters and job-training programs. Dress for Success provides each woman with a business suit when she has a job interview. In addition to the interview suit, Dress for Success volunteers also assist women one-on-one with résumé edits, mock interviews and other job search assistance in the Career Center. Women who are seeking work can also join the Breakfast Club, which meets weekly and provides information, resources and support in a small group setting. 

When a woman gains employment, she returns to Dress for Success for up to one week’s worth of business-appropriate separates. She is also invited to join the Professional Women’s Group, a networking and professional development association for newly-working women. The Professional Women’s Group meets monthly and covers topics such as financial literacy, health and wellness, workplace communications, career advancement and more. More than 75% of Professional Women’s Group members are still employed after one year.
