Dress For Success Opens Its Worldwide – Central Office In Chicago

December 8, 2010 • Events, Yahoo


A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place yesterday, December 7, 2010 at the brand new Dress for Success Worldwide – Central office in Chicago. This beautiful space with interior design by Suzanne Lovel, Inc. is located on the 23rd floor at 515 N. State Street.

I met Clara Hayes, Branch Manager, Central Office, Suzanne Elliott, Executive Vice President Resource Development and Strategic Marketing, and Mary Faith McConville, Regional Director, Central Office, who gave me an update.

Dress_For_Success_Guidance The mission of Dress for Success is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
