Suits for Success

Suits for Success

A dozen years ago, members of the newly created Commission on the Status of Women had an idea to help disadvantaged women enter or advance in the workforce: dress them for success.

They cleared their closets of work-appropriate attire and accessories, and encouraged their friends and colleagues to do the same. The annual Suits for Success event generates great support in the community collecting boxes of clothing, accessories and toiletries for My Sister’s Closet, an outreach program of the YWCA of Central Alabama.
