Gift Of Innovation
Dresscode is Parterning with Dress For Success and Big Brothers Big Sisters to Offer STEM Education by Gifting Lessons to Both Organizations.
The Gift of Innovation is a new program that will expose, empower, and inspire thousands of women and girls to pursue a career in coding and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
As a company, we are partnering with organizations that focus on the positive development of teen girls as well as professional development for women in need. That’s why both Big Brothers Big Sisters and Dress For Success are prefect organizations to partner with to launch the Gift of Innovation Program.
The program will work on a one-for-one model. Today when a customer buys a Dresscode coding bracelet it unlocks a coding lesson. With the ‘Gift of Innovation,’ Dresscode will also gift a lesson to impoverished populations of women and girls who want to learn to code.
To kick off the program, Dresscode will be giving away 1000 coding lessons to the partner organizations.
Going forward, upon purchasing a Dresscode coding bracelet, a coding lesson will be gifted to one of the two partner organizations.
With the “Gift of Innovation” program, Dresscode aims to host 10,000 coding lessons for women and girls by the end of the year.
