Dress for Success, GK Strategy’s charity partner

Giving back to the society in which we operate and supporting women climb the career ladder is a crucial part of GK’s culture. This is why we are proud to support Dress for Success London in its mission to empower women to achieve economic independence. Through this partnership, our consultants are mentoring, donating clothes and taking up other volunteer opportunities to help women successfully prepare for and succeed in interview processes.

At GK, we are proud to have a charity partner who shares our values. All three of our business divisions are headed by great leaders, all of whom happen to be women. We believe in the importance of providing support and encouragement to hard-working individuals, who with the right stepping stone can thrive in whatever their professional goals may be.

Instead of just writing a cheque, we believe it’s better to be creative and incorporate this partnership into the business. Therefore, we offer all staff volunteering opportunities, alongside planning a range of fun activities to contribute to the charities fundraising initiatives.

We look forward to the long-lasting and successful partnership and encourage all businesses, small, medium and large, to explore opportunities beyond monetary value.

About Dress for Success

Dress for Success is a charity founded on the value of empowering women to achieve economic independence. Volunteers and staff provide women seeking work a supportive network, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive and achieve their goals, both in work and life.

Since operating in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 150 cities in 30 countries and has helped more than one million women work towards self-sufficiency.

Dress for Success has a global network of 5,000 organisations who send women from homeless shelters, immigration services, job training programs, educational institutions and domestic violence shelters – amongst many others – who refer women to the organisation once a job interview has been secured.
