The nonprofit organization empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. The organization is seeing an increased need for its services.
“We are facing the first global female recession due to COVID-19, and the facts are alarming,” said Lisa Doromal, Dress for Success Phoenix founder/CEO, in a release.
In September, 865,000 women dropped out of the U.S. workforce, a level not seen since 1988. Globally, nearly 70% of women who have experienced COVID-19-related disruptions are concerned about their ability to progress in their careers, the release said.
