The Changing the Odds Committee is gearing up for our next Landing the Job seminar on October 15 at the Chamber, a day-long workshop of empowering women to confidently pursue their career goals. The committee hosts this event twice a year (Spring and Fall) for women who are looking for ways to improve their job prospects, and committee members provide them with education and resources about career development, resume and cover letter writing, interview dos and don’ts, and dressing for success. After a fashion show, attendees are given vouchers to shop for work- and interview-appropriate clothes at Upscale Resale.
At the September 22 Women’s Network Luncheon the Changing the Odds Committee hosted a business clothing drive, and we were blown away by the generosity of network members and their colleagues! Your gently-used skirts, shirts, suits, dresses, and accessories were delivered to Assistance League of Mid-Missouri/Upscale Resale and will be set aside for women attending our workshop. Thank you again for your donations and for the difference you’re making in the lives of women in our community!
