Dress for Success Dublin has announced a collaboration with Oracle Women’s Leadership (OWL), aimed at encouraging more women to consider careers in IT and digital industries.

“Oracle sees the value of mentorship to Dress for Success clients: women looking to create economic sustainability for themselves and their families.
“The enthusiasm by the team at Oracle Women’s Leadership has meant that we can hit the ground running, building our clients’ confidence to build their career.”
