 Help Raise Funds for NAPW Foundation Partner Dress for Success! 

NAPW defines success as “owning your own power” — to follow your dreams and call for the confidence within yourself to move forward in your life and career.

Join NAPW President, Star Jones; National Director of Chapters, Louise Newsome; CEO of Dress for Success, Joi Gordon; and very special guest Lea Goldman, Features & Special Projects Director, Marie Claire magazine on Monday, June 1, 2015 for the NAPW Call for Confidence. The empowering philanthropic mission of Dress for Success promotes the economic emancipation of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Help raise funds, support the cause and learn about the latest Dress for Success programs and initiatives, and how you can get involved; tips and advice on how to dress for career success and a journey of success shared by a Dress for Success graduate. Additionally, we’ll have a very informative Q&A with Star and fashion expert, Lea Goldman from Marie Claire magazine. As a thank you for joining our Call for Confidence, you’ll receive a special gift from Marie Claire.

Remember, she who is clothed in confidence has the power to succeed!
