Now is the time to celebrate

Now is the Time to Celebrate Women Who Lead

Our annual Women's History Month and International Women's Day campaign, Your Hour, Her Power, is inspired by the belief that when a woman has access to opportunities that can change her life, she becomes powerful beyond measure.

By giving just one hour of your pay, you give a Dress for Success woman access to programs, services, and tools that will help her achieve economic advancement.

We are excited to introduce 31 Days of Women in Power, an extension of our annual Your Hour, Her Power campaign.

Throughout March 2021, we will celebrate groundbreaking women in leadership positions at a time when it’s needed most.


Female leaders not only play a pivotal role in driving corporate and economic gains, but social and cultural change as well. They are sources of inspiration for other women navigating obstacles like gender-based bias along their journeys to success and deserve their moment to shine.

We are proud to have these companies on board to celebrate their female leaders and take the Your Hour, Her Power pledge!

As an organization dedicated to supporting women’s financial independence, this campaign promotes the importance of leadership and empowerment of women for all women.

Your Hour, Her Power is an opportunity to publicly align your company with women’s empowerment, diversity, equity, and inclusion. This campaign offers: 1) high visibility for female leaders; 2) respected brand recognition through a partnership with Dress for Success and O, The Oprah Magazine; 3) community building through employee engagement opportunities with a tie-in to a good cause. We encourage each participating company to use their internal and external platforms to highlight female leadership in their organizations as part of Your Hour, Her Power.

We will share fresh and compelling content throughout the month of March to include profiles and stories of notable female leaders via a robust social media campaign and dedicated microsite.

Donations allow us to continue our mission and serve increasing numbers of women displaced by the pandemic. We operate in 25 countries and have nearly 150 affiliates who have also been greatly challenged by the effects of the current global crisis. Money raised from this campaign will help us deliver programs, which focus on job search support, financial literacy education, and health and wellness. More importantly, donations help give women access to a productive network and safe community.
