Dress for Success Columbus will be closed Friday, October 21 for off-site programming at our Beyond the Suit Luncheon. The agency will reopen on Monday, October 24 at 8:30 AM. We apologize for any inconvenience, and appreciate your support of our mission and the inspirational women we empower!

Our mission empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

All programs, including Interview and Employment Suiting, Career Center, and Professional Women’s Group Employment Retention are free of charge for every woman we assist. Any woman referred by a community partner is eligible for service.
With the community’s support, since opening our doors in 2007, we’re honored to have empowered over 9,000 women to achieve their potential in Central Ohio!  We are proud to be an affiliate of Dress for Success Worldwide, and over 140 sister affiliates in 20 countries across the globe!
