About Dress for Success Pittsburgh

Professional  Suiting Program:

Women seeing employment face a dilemma. They have the drive and initiative to pursue employment but don’t have the economic means to acquire interview clothing or work uniforms. Dress for Success Pittsburgh’s professional clothing program answers an immediate need. We help level the playing field, removing a simple but significant barrier between the client and the workplace.

Professional Women’s Group:

PWG is the first and only national initiative of its kind, focused on specific job retention workshops and networking as a career development tool for women re-entering the workforce. It takes a practical and comprehensive approach to moving women toward financial and emotional self-sufficiency by addressing social and economic needs in relation to work, home, and community. PWG provides a safe and supportive environment for women who have recently transitioned into the workforce.

Career Development Workshop:

The Career Development Workshops provide women with useful basic and advanced skills that will build their resumes. With help from passionate community partners and volunteers, we provide workshops that cover a variety of topics that are useful for both work and life.
