Dress for Success Rochester (DFSR) Express Mobile Boutique - Career Center Tour and Happy Hour Post-Event Recap


HBA Rochester recently collaborated with Dress for Success Rochester (DFSR) for an eye-opening, impactful, and inspiring evening. Attendees got to hear first-hand from DFSR CEO/Founder, Alyssa Whitfield, and Brand Ambassadors about how Dress for Success Rochester is helping to support women in creating careers for themselves on all fronts in the Greater Rochester community. As Alyssa said, "We are about much more than simply a new outfit." HBA Rochester members in attendance learned all about Dress for Success Rochester's value of "connection by inspiring and engaging their volunteers and donors to join together and support their clients in building confidence and helping to remove barriers to employment." We greatly appreciate our HBA members who expressed interest in a “give back” event aimed at supporting a local organization within our community that is also aligned with our own core mission and values. We thank Dress for Success Rochester for their willingness to partner with our Programming team, our Programming Director at Large Rebecca Herman, and our Lead Networking Coordinator Erica Mann-Tallon to deliver this first-of-its-kind collaborative event for our chapter.

Supporting an organization such as Dress for Success Rochester is integral to our ability to serve our community and help further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. HBA Rochester is looking forward to this continued partnership!
