Dress for Success® Worldwide Launches its Largest Campaign, Your Hour, Her Power®, Celebrating 31 Honorees from Global Network


Sunny Hostin, Laura Kim, and Brandon Maxwell champion the trailblazing women of Dress for Success 

NEW YORK, March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Dress for Success Worldwide, the leading global nonprofit employment resource for women, today launched its largest annual campaign, Your Hour, Her Power, to celebrate Women's History Month in the United States and International Women's Day around the world.

For the first time in the history of the campaign, this year Your Hour, Her Power honors 31 trailblazing women served by the Dress for Success network of 139 affiliates across 22 countries. This outstanding group of women reflects Dress for Success's global footprint.

Each Honoree will be celebrated on her unique day in March and spotlighted on the campaign microsite, yourhourherpower.org. They will share their stories of determination, perseverance, and finding the courage and confidence to create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Your Hour, Her Power raises much needed funds to fuel the no-fee programming Dress for Success provides to unemployed and underemployed women in their pursuit of economic independence. This campaign is possible thanks to the generous support of our Title Sponsor: FedEx. Dress for Success would also like to thank our President's Circle Sponsors: Arm & Hammer Laundry, Experian North America, and Sono Bello, as well as our Executive Circle Partners: AGEbeautiful by Zotos Professional, Constellation Brands, ELEMIS, JCPenney, MillerKnoll, Scotiabank, and SIMI Wine.

Meyer-Shipp, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide, says: "I am thrilled to announce that, this year, our largest annual campaign will recognize, celebrate, and honor the incredible women we have the privilege of serving across our global affiliate network. These women have overcome tremendous obstacles in their journeys to become economically independent. They are now community leaders and agents of change who embody our diversity, mission, and values. We are grateful to them and to all who support our commitment to help women thrive from the inside out."
