What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

StyleHER

Dress for Success Cincinnati solves the “Catch-22” that confronts women trying to enter the workforce: without a job, how can you afford an interview outfit? But without the outfit, how do you make a great impression at that interview?

Dress for Success Cincinnati became renowned for providing professional clothing to women returning to or entering the workforce. Although our mission has expanded, the StyleHER (formerly known as Suiting) program remains a crucial part of our work and a vital first step in your journey toward self-sufficiency.

Dress for Success Cincinnati offers styling services for women in the interview process, as well as services when she lands the job. During the styling appointment for an upcoming interview, she receives two fabulous outfits, complete with shoes, accessories and a handbag. Once she is offered the job, she can return and be styled with 10 new pieces to start her new career in!

Our EmpowerHER program offers ongoing support to help women reach economic self-sufficiency and the goal of being able to give back to the community. EmpowerHER provides educational opportunities and a network that helps women in the workplace continue to develop skills and advance in their careers.

We offer meetings and events including expert speakers and networking with professionals from a variety of industries and with other women who have made similar transitions into the workforce. Topics are centered around financial wellness, corporate culture, work-life balance, health and wellness and leadership and civic responsibility.

EmpowerHER members have lifelong access to resources that will help them further their personal and professional growth.

Our HigherHER women's career development program helps unemployed and under-employed women gain professional skills, accelerate their job search and build confidence through the HigherHER curriculum and our partnership with Cincinnati Works in our Career Center.

The HigherHER program typically lasts four weeks and covers a wide range of topics, including resume writing, salary negotiations, understanding your benefits and more!

HigherHER can also be taught offsite at local organizations or high schools.

The Career Center offers individualized services and resources that are vital for women entering the workforce, such as career guidance, access to technology, work skill development, and support. Beginning with their first visit, clients are encouraged to use our Career Center, which promotes confidence and professionalism and helps them secure and maintain employment.

In Partnership with Cincinnati Works, our Career Center Specialist works one-on-one with women to help them create a superior resume and cover letter, provide career counseling and mock interviews and facilitate access to professional skills training courses.
