Dress for Sucess Fundraiser

Dress for Success founding member Amanda French, Aurora Energy CEO Rebecca Kardos and TasCOSS CEO Kym Goodes sit alongside panel facilitator Caroline Pillans at the Dress for Success Hobart’s fundraising breakfast.

Disadvantaged women are being assisted by business to thrive in work and life.

Aurora Energy has helped launch a brand new Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation, Dress for Success, which aims to empower Tasmanian women to break existing cycles and seek safer and better futures.

Professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools are provided by the organisation, which is based in Hobart but has seen success internationally over 20 years.

Aurora Energy CEO Rebecca Kardos said as a key employer in Tasmania, Aurora Energy recognises the importance of providing opportunities to all Tasmanians, especially so when it is someone’s first attempt at finding work.

“Aurora Energy indeed often finds itself as the first employer for a number of Tasmanians,” Mrs Kardos said.

“We are confident Dress for Success will encourage more women to secure employment within our industry by equipping them with the confidence and support network to do so.”
