Dress for Success Dublin campaigns at all levels of politics, industry and civil society for full workplace equality. It is our aim to help realise workplace equality here in Ireland, drawing on our political and business networks and the feedback we receive from our clients.
#WorkEqual Campaign – Highlighting the Gender Pay Gap
Since November 2016, we have staged an annual campaign to raise awareness of the gender pay gap and related issues. This year, we’ll be highlighting the gender pay gap with a series of actions and events beginning on 11th November 2019, the day on which women in Ireland stop earning, relative to men. That’s because the current gender pay gap of 13.9% means that woman in Ireland effectively work for free for the last 50 days of the year, when compared with their male counterparts.
Among the events taking place as part of our #WorkEqual campaign will be;
#WorkEqual Thought Leadership Conference
We’re delighted to announce our upcoming ‘Practical Steps to Workplace Equality’ conference. Taking place in The Marker Hotel, Dublin, on Wednesday, 27th November. The conference will play host to leading international figures, from business, politics and civil society, at the forefront of the fight for gender equality in the workplace. It will take place as part of the annual #WorkEqual campaign by Dress for Success.
Full details available here.
We’ll be holding a day of action in Leinster House, engaging members of the Oireactas, briefing TDs and Senators on the gender pay gap, workplace equality, and most importantly, the solutions! We’ll also be running similar briefings in each of the four local authorities in Dublin.
Power Lunch 2019
After the phenomenal success of last year’s inaugural Power Lunch, the fundraising event is returning for it’s second year at Marco Pierre White Courtyard Bar & Grill and will play host to people from business, politics and civil society raising funds for Dress for Success. Such was the success last year, that the 2019 event is already fully booked. We’ll be announcing details of our exciting 2020 event very soon.
