Professional Women’s Group’s Graduation Celebration!

“Since I joined the PWG group, I gained more confidence and enjoy working with others a lot. I am very inspired by the chemistry of this wonderful group. It is a great experience of sharing and learning and this contributed to my success. Many thanks.” - PWG Member

The PWG members celebrate their graduation after receiving their 18-month career development program certification! 
On June 27th, 2015, almost 20 women graduated from PWG! Cheers to their success in completing the program. Here at Dress for Success Vancouver, our clients have the opportunity to enrol in a free 18-month Professional Women’s Group (PWG) program that assists members during the transition period from unemployment to being in the workforce. 

Our PWG Community Action Project ambassador Tarana Sultan and her commitee.

Our moderator, Sally, and our PWG Graduate, Thelma Palma, who shared her inspirational story.

In each monthly session, the women receive guidance from expert speakers, education on handling challenges and personal finance, as well as opportunities to interact and network with each other. The members truly invest in themselves by attending these workshops: by the end of the 18 months, they not only develop professional skills, but also the confidence to move toward self-sufficiency. If you would like to support a woman, a donation of only $30 a month ($360 per year) will give a woman the gift of self-esteem, self-sufficiency, and success through education, mentoring, and professional attire. Your donation will change her life and her family's lives forever.

  1. you have done good job its really informative for me.

  2. I would like to bring this to the notice of the public about how I came in contact with Mr Pedro after I lost my sawmill job and was denied a loan by my bank and other financial institutions due to my credit score. I could not pay my children's fees. Furthermore, I was behind on bills, about to be thrown out of the house due to my inability to pay my rent, It was during this period my kids were taken from me by foster care. Then I set out to seek funds online where I read about Mr Pedro helping people with a loan online in which this email was stated (pedroloanss@gmail.com) somewhere on the internet, Still wasn't convinced because of what I have been through until a relative of mine who is a clergy also told me about the ongoing loan scheme at a very low interest rate of 2% and lovely repayment terms without penalty for default of payment. I had no choice than to also contact them, which I did. Mr Pedro responded back to me. That day was the best and greatest day of my life which can never be forgotten when I received a credit alert for the $400,000.00 USD loan amount I applied for. I utilized the loan effectively to pay up my debts and to start up a sawmill business, and today my kids and I are so happy and fulfilled. You can also contact them through email: (pedroloanss@gmail.com Or WhatsApp: +18632310632) Why am I doing this? I am doing this to save as many that are in need of a loan on the internet. Thanks and God bless you all, I'm Oleksander Artem from Horizon Park BC, Ukraine
