#BreaktheBias for women

This International Women’s Day 8 March, and the month of March, support our mission to raise $250,000 to transition more than 700 women to face their job search with the confidence, clothing, and tools to get hired. 

The ask is simple but the impact is huge - all you need to do is pledge one hour of your pay to help a woman who is struggling to achieve employment and financial stability.

Your hour is more than just a gift — it’s an investment in the future. When women work, families thrive, communities prosper, and the economy grows. 

This year's global International Women's Day theme 'Break the Bias' aligns with everything Dress for Success stands for, believes in, and the very reason we exist.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on the gender gap in Australia. Women have been disproportionately impacted, magnifying the barriers they already face in getting a job and staying in the workforce.

Dress for Success takes women from welfare to work with practical tools, advice, and support. By providing a holistic program of work wardrobe, job search and personal development workshops, and career coaching, we are helping Australian women empower themselves to get back on their feet and become financially independent.

Empower Hour Client Advocates

Introducing our Empower Hour Client Advocates, who are paying it forward and sharing how they found roles they love with the support of Dress for Success.


Working in the travel industry, Isela lost two jobs during the pandemic. After her first Dress for Success workshop on 'resilience', she was hooked.


Joy knew she had a case when she was wrongfully dismissed. She didn't however, anticipate having to start from scratch with her unexpected job search.


Wanting a career change, Marina wasn't sure where to start. Fast forward to an incredible role with a start-up, she credits career coaching.
