International Women’s Day is right around the corner: 8 March, 2022. This year we are supporting Dress for Success and Empower Hour in their mission to transition more than 700 women from welfare to the workforce.

Empower Hour is a pay it forward campaign. We are asking you to pledge one hour of your pay (or an amount you’re comfortable with) to directly help a woman on her path to employment and financial security, for herself and her dependents.

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.

For this International Women’s Day on 8 March, 2022, #BreakTheBias and donate one hour of your pay to empower a woman to change her future. Help us reach our goal of $1,000.
