Through our programs, Clients get a fresh start, empowering them to actively define their life and change the trajectory of their future. We are so very grateful for everyone who helped make 2022 one of Dress for Success Toronto’s most memorable years. From our Clients who inspire us every day, to our Volunteers who generously give their time, and donors that support our commitment to empower women in the community, we couldn’t do the work we do without you.
By giving the equivalent of just one hour of your pay, you give a Dress for Success Toronto Client access to programs, services, and tools that will help her achieve economic advancement, at no cost. Your support makes this possible.
This year, we re-launched Professional Women’s Group under a new name and format, introducing the Working Women’s Group. This cohort based networking and learning opportunity successfully brought together 24 individuals. Over the course of the 8-week, participants of the WWG gathered virtually each week to learn from industry professionals on topics designed to build skills and advance their careers. For the final session, we gathered together in-person at the DFS Toronto Boutique for an opportunity to network, have professional headshots taken and share in the success of the program.
In 2022, we also grew our network of support, engaging 1,088 unique women through our career development services. From our Mastering Your Job Search After: The Future of Work Conference, to our Virtual Career Learning Programs and Online Career Centre, we provided over 3,150 hours of career learning and development services to our Clients, highlighting how our programs go beyond simply helping our Clients find the perfect outfit.
Of course, we still supported hundreds of Women through our core Suiting Program, providing thousands of clothing and accessory items to help our Clients not only look their best, but feel their best. This past year, we facilitated 849 Suiting Appointments at our Boutique and virtually.
We couldn’t have achieved these figures without the support from our dedicated volunteer team. Our mission is made possible because of the wonderful individuals who donate their time, energy and skills to our organization.
