“To empower women by providing knowledge and a selection of work attire for their transition into the workplace”
What We Do
- The Walk-In Closet provides personal consultations on professional business attire, to women facing financial barriers who want to join the workforce, return to school or engage in volunteer opportunities.
- In addition to information on business culture and appropriate dress, participants are offered gently used clothing and accessories, at no cost, to help them feel and look their best.
- Our First Impressions presentation is available to groups interested in learning how to make a great “First Impression” at a jobsite or interview. Appropriate workplace attire, grooming and interview expectations are key components of this dynamic presentation.
Walk-In Closet participants can be referred by community serving agencies, pre-employment training programs or educational institutions in Calgary and the surrounding area. Participants may self refer if they meet the appropriate criteria.
Participants must be experiencing financial barriers and in need of appropriate clothing for interviews, new jobs, their current workplace, school or volunteer work.
