Dress for Success Dublin was founded in 2011 by stylist, designer and tech entrepreneur, Sonya Lennon. Our mission is to promote the economic independence of women by providing career development tools and a support network.
We are an affiliate of a global organisation, Dress for Success Worldwide, an international not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of women in 145 cities across 23 countries.
We provide free career development tools such as:
- Professional clothing and styling advance in advance of your job interview;
- Interview preparation sessions with experienced HR professionals;
- Sector-specific educational workshops; and
- Mentoring programmes.
Along with our services, we offer clients the opportunity to join a network providing peer support and ongoing career development opportunities.
Since we were established, we have supported over 1,500 women with the clothes, skills and development opportunities they needed to secure employment and achieve success.
Over 57% of those women are now working, and over 75% are where they want to be, whether in employment or in further education and training.
