Women Of Distinction Speaker Series
September 7, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$32.00 – $50.00
For 18 years, Kathy Lambert has devoted herself to ending the “generational cycle of poverty” through her not-for-profit agency, Connections to Success. What began as Dress for Success Midwest, providing interviewing clothing to women re-entering the workforce, has grown to a holistic program providing hope, resources and a plan for making an impact for the next generation.
Connections is nationally recognized as an evidence-based model for improving children’s futures by empowering parents to become economically independent. The organization’s innovative employment training and retention programs address families’ social and economic needs in relation to work, home and community.
Among many other honors, Kathy received the 2013 Volunteer Service Award from the President of The United States and participated in the White House Summit for Working Families. She is a graduate of Focus St. Louis Leadership and a graduate and faculty member of the National Practitioners Leadership Institute. She served as the first Board President for Dress for Success Worldwide.
