Success Works: a new perspective on diversity and inclusion

A criminal record should never be viewed as an automatic disqualification for employment.

Success Works is a program of Dress for Success Sydney, unique in Australia.

Success Works clients challenge stereotyped attitudes by showing they make valued members of staff. The program has successfully worked with women, with a criminal record, seek and find employment in many industries including administration, food production, compliance, medical reception, cleaning, retail and customer service.

The program aims to:

  • Provide work readiness/ employability skill development and transitional support for women affected by the criminal justice system
  • Deliver employment opportunities
  • Support commences pre- and continues post-release to increase women’s employability and level of success transitioning back into society and the workforce
