The Catharine S. Eberly Center for Women will host a luncheon Friday, April 5, at 11:30 a.m. in Tucker Hall Room 0168 to introduce a new program that will continue the mission of empowering women in the work force.

The program, Kate’s Closet, strives to be a resource for women to find professional business attire without incurring the cost of a new wardrobe.

“The center continues to be a place of support but has until now mainly focused on empowerment through education and skill building,” said Dr. Shanda Gore, associate vice president for equity, diversity and community engagement. “By creating Kate’s Closet, we are expanding to offer professional clothing to help women dress for success and to support them on their own positive brand building.”

The luncheon will mark the kickoff of a donation drive to create a collection of professional business attire that can then be offered free of charge to those women who utilize the Eberly Center.

If you are interested in attending the free, public luncheon, RSVP by Tuesday, April 2, to Emily Hardcastle at emily.hardcastle@utoledo.edu or 419.530.7232. She also is the contact if you want to donate business attire.
