CHARITIES WE SUPPORT
We proudly support charities that are dedicated to women and women causes. Our goal of empowering women is not only evident in our complete collection, but also in the way we promote our customers and advocate charities that help women achieve better lives. We’re passionate about investing in women to achieve professional and personal success. We strongly believe that every woman should have the tools and the opportunity to be successful, and we champion organizations that promote confidence, courage, and an all-around positive vibe. Whether it be advancing professional women through connections and further instruction or creating and implementing dynamic after-school and weekend programs for teens, we strongly believe in helping women and girls achieve their dreams as they join the emploi-force.
