Gallagher Tubman has chosen to Dress for Success as their charity of choice and donated all proceeds from the November 2018 launch. Here’s what Dress for Success had to say:
Dress for Success is so happy to announce that through the draw during the Gallagher Tubman launch, your guests raised $890! All totalled, your guests will be supporting 3 women through all Dress for Success programs and services for an entire year! What a wonderful way to begin the Dress for Success/Gallagher Tubman partnership! We couldn’t be more honoured that Gallagher Tubman has chosen Dress for Success as their charity of choice.
Dress for Success Ottawa’s mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. We provide services to over 800 women every year. Our diverse clients are women looking to re-enter or enter the workforce. Many are single mothers, new Canadians, or those who have simply fallen on hard times. We work with over 100 local not-for-profit and charitable organizations acting as referral agencies. A registered Canadian charity, Dress for Success Ottawa is one of 161 offices in 30 countries and one of 12 in Canada.
Our clients are paired with a personal consultant who assists in finding up to two appropriate interview outfits. After finding employment, clients can return for one week’s worth of professional clothing. Our clients can role play in a real-life simulation; they also have access to professional HR resources and professional development workshops from building a resume to leadership development.

Professional clothing (business causal to business formal), accessories, new toiletries, new make-up, shoes, and bags. During the winter, we also accept outerwear including coats, hats, mittens and boots.
