Throughout 2017, we were lucky to work with a wide range of amazing corporate supporters.
In the lead-up to Christmas, AIB held a clothing collection at their Bankcentre in Ballsbridge, followed by a staff event about “Empowerment In Action”, hosted by the Women Matters diversity and inclusion group, which was addressed by our founder, Sonya Lennon.

During the event, Sonya spoke about role models; career challenges and how she overcame them; pay parity; and how she supports other women. One lucky attendee also won a personal styling session with Sonya during the raffle on the night.

There was great feedback on the event and, with almost 4,000 staff located at AIB’s Ballsbridge premises, the clothing collection was also a huge success. Over the course of one busy day, lots of great work attire was donated. This will be used to stock our on-site clothing boutique, where we provide interview clothing for women in advance of job interviews.
A huge ‘thank you’ to AIB for their great support for our work!
