An Evening with Dress For Success Perth

August 31 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM AWST

WA Central Metro network
Returning to the workforce can be dauting. CV Writing, Interview Skills, LinkedIn, SEEK, employment contracts compounded with the constant juggle of caring responsibilities and inherent workforce bias.  Dress For Success has been operating in Perth for over 6 years, working with women returning to work to be job ready. Their services range beyond clothes styling to those of career coaching and interview techniques to build the confidence of Perth women to find suitable roles and create financial independence.

This is our second partnership event with Dress For Success Perth (DFSP) who will showcase their impactful work in assisting women return into the workforce.  Volunteers from Dress for Success will take us through examples of how they assist women with professional development opportunities, career management, clothing and personal branding. We will hear from volunteers with a call to action as to how HR professionals can influence change to inherent bias in the recruitment process. We invite you to join us in this discussion.

DFSP has kindly opened their doors to our AHRI network as a private event. We will have a unique opportunity to purchase surplus clothing plus a silent auction for some specially donated items. 

As a not for profit, DFS Perth work with approx. 30 women per month, funds are predominately raised through the sale of surplus clothing and used for development and resume building programs.  Offers of professional assistance in recruitment, coaching and mentoring are also welcomed.

Registration for the event is free for everyone, door donations are welcomed in place of a ticket price. Food and drinks will be provided.

Please join us for this unique event and enjoy an evening of influencing change, networking, shopping and community partnership. Spaces are limited and the session will not be provided online.

Dress for Success Perth is a WA charity that is part of a global movement for change.
We empower women to achieve economic independence by supporting them with professional clothing, career development workshops, and one-to-one job application support.
Donations of high quality professional clothing enable us to provide appropriate outfits for job interviews, new jobs and other life events, with our circular economy model – recycle, reuse and resell – aiming for every unwanted item of clothing to avoid landfill.
Our clients might be seeking work after a period of unemployment, be a person with a disability, be re-entering the community from the justice system, or be starting anew after surviving violence.
We offer vulnerable WA women a safe and non-judgmental space, where they can grow their confidence, courage and job-readiness skills ready for their new start.
