Dress for Success
What is Dress for Success?
Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to almost 160 cities in 27 countries.
Why Do We Support Their Mission?
AST has partnered with Dress for Success because we too believe in building positive networks of support for women, treating others with dignity and respect, and equipping women to strengthen their lives and shape their communities.
How Does Beta Upsilon Help?
In the past, we have physically volunteered at a local affiliate to help sort, steam, and prep clothes for women to look their best in their professional endeavors. Each fall, we host Charity Ball which has financially supported the mission of Dress for Success. The event has various guest speakers, raffles, games, food, and fun for members of the Greek Life, NJIT, and Dress for Success community.
