Dress for Success® and FedEx Launch New Interactive Online Learning Platform

Career Hub, sponsored by FedEx Corp., will take the organization’s Career Center to an entirely new level by providing women around the world with unprecedented access to online learning.

Press Release – New York, NY (July 11, 2017): Dress for Success Worldwide, in collaboration with FedEx Corp., is set to launch The Career Hub, an innovative digital platform which will provide access to online learning and workforce development resources for women through their computers or smart phones. This progressive evolution will enable clients and affiliates of Dress for Success to interface with a high quality educational resource coupled with shared access to opportunities.

The Career Hub, fully funded by FedEx, directly supports Dress for Success Career Centers which focus on providing programming for women at various stages of their employment development cycle including career preparation, planning and development, workforce development, employment and career advancement and life-long learning. The Career Center has become an invaluable resource for women around the world to stay connected to their local affiliate, participate in workshops and maintain a network of support.

Dress for Success Chief Program Officer, Angela Williams, is thrilled with the potential to provide women juggling challenging schedules with vital career information to help ensure their professional success. “The Career Hub platform and mobile app are guaranteed to expand the reach and scope of our global programming way beyond the traditional brick and mortar setting,” she said. “Over the past twenty years, we have served over one million women, now there are no limits to the number that we can serve.”

The Career Hub will continue to be a game changer for Dress for Success as it provides a pathway to bolster affiliate programmatic implementation and execution, enrich the professional development of all of its members, include industry specific career mapping, descriptions of career opportunities on a job board, postings of up and coming webinars, employment vacancies and skills-based training classes on the Career Hub dashboard.

“We are excited to support Dress for Success with this new technology that will give women the tools and job skills they need to successfully navigate the job application process, secure employment and help them remain employed,” said Rose Flenorl, manager of global citizenship at FedEx. “At FedEx we understand that an estimated one-third of unemployment in the United States can be attributed to the gap between the skills candidates possess and those desired by employers. The Career Hub aligns with our Employment Pathways pillar in which we are committed to help bridge this divide, by making sure that all job-seekers have the chance to develop necessary workforce skills and competencies.”

To keep their program standards high, Dress for Success aims to serve all women with the most relevant and advanced services possible. With the support of FedEx they plan to continue to expand and enhance their highly regarded Career Centers. The Career Hub will launch in all three Dress for Success Worldwide satellite offices in the New York, Chicago and Los Angeles locations. A special launch event will be held in all three locations on July 18th, 2017 from 6:30-8:30 PM. For more information and event details, please contact lindsey@dressforsuccess.org.
