Fitted for Work – Charity Partner

Click Engage Convert is proud to be partnering with local Melbourne-based charity, Fitted For Work, for the 2019 conference. 

 

A portion of the ticket sales from Click Engage Convert will be donated to Fitted For Work, and we will also be accepting clothing donations on the event day which will be passed along to women who need them. 

 

The charity helps women experiencing disadvantage to get into work and keep it through several methods, including offering employment services which help women build their skills and develop their confidence in order to achieve meaningful work, workshops, and coaching.

 

They also provide leadership and advocacy so that their clients and thousands of women like them have a voice. They use their knowledge and experience to inform and change government policy and strive to inform perceptions around how women come to be faced with adverse conditions and the impact it has on them, their family and the wider community.

 

This is made possible through philanthropic support, the generous donation of high-quality second-hand clothing and the support of their skilled and caring volunteers. Clients are referred by community partners and are booked into services in Melbourne, VIC and Parramatta, NSW.

Fitted for Work welcomes all women (trans and cis), including non-binary and gender non-conforming people and all those who identify as women, who have experienced disadvantage and are seeking employment.

Fitted for Work is an innovative organisation and the first of its kind in Australia. Their vision is economic independence and empowerment for women and their mission is to help women experiencing disadvantage to get work, keep work and navigate their world of work. They do this by developing each woman’s confidence and self-esteem as well as her skills and knowledge to obtain work through a suite of tailored pre-and post-employment programs and services that are delivered nationally.

Fitted For Work focuses specifically on helping women to gain employment because work provides financial security as well as a sense of social connectedness, dignity and pride.

“We believe that when a woman is fitted for work, she is fitted for life.”

Click Engage Convert is proud to be partnering with Fitted For Work to assist them in achieving their goals. As well as contributing a percentage of the ticket sales from Click Engage Convert to Fitted to Work, we will also be taking clothing donations in the lead up to and at the event that will be passed onto women in need.

Jim’s Self Storage has kindly donated some boxes that we will be using to collect clothing donations at Click Engage Convert. We will also have boxes at Business Addicts Coworking in Hoppers Crossing in the lead up to the event, so if you can’t make it to Click Engage Convert, you can always pop in before then to drop off your donations.

Fitted for work accepts good quality, clean appropriate women’s clothing and accessories. The golden rule is… if you wouldn’t wear it to work today, then their clients wouldn’t wear it either.
