Farmingville, NY - Supervisor Ed Romaine and the members of the Town Council today announced the new “Your Hour, Her Power” campaign by Dress for Success Brookhaven. Now in its 22nd year, Dress for Success Brookhaven was founded on the belief that all women deserve equal access to opportunities that will position them for economic advancement, making it synonymous with the vision and mission of International Women’s Day. This campaign celebrates the achievements of Dress for Success and encourages supporters to donate one hour of their pay to help give a woman access to our programs and services so that she may begin her journey to financial independence and upward mobility.
Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “I commend the Dress for Success Brookhaven for all they do to help women achieve success in the workplace. ‘Your Hour, Her Power’ is a great opportunity to support women’s efforts and encourage them to aim high and reach their professional and personal goals. By providing hope and a little help, you can make a difference in someone’s life.”
Dress for Success is expanding this initiative in 2021 with our media partner O, The Oprah Magazine, by honoring women throughout the month of March to highlight the importance and impact of female leadership when it is most needed.
