Triangle Dress for Success Seminar

Founder/Director Mrs. Pat Nathan

This week, I was given the opportunity to attend the Triangle Dress for Success seminar entitled Dress: 101 in Durham, North Carolina. This was an informative session that discussed the purpose of Dress for Success and the process that goes on to help suit the women for either their very first interview with an employer or their employment suiting opportunity (when they actually get the job). Professional Career services are set up and the ladies can choose to attend to make certain that once they get the job, they can retain it. These women feel apart of their communities when they are able to make progressive steps in making their lives better.

I had the absolute pleasure to meet the Founder/Director, Mrs. Pat Nathan. She has a undying compassion to help see women in the Triangle succeed through the likes of our local affiliate and throughout our state. Great minds think alike because I too have the same passion!

Since opening in June 2008, DFS Triangle has served more than 150 women with a goal to serve 500 women in 2009!

More than 5,000 women have received career coaching, mentoring services, and professional development support through this global organization.
