INDIANAPOLIS – MDwise is proud to be a supporter of Dress for Success Indianapolis by hosting a number of events to benefit the organization’s clients. Throughout June, MDwise associates will collect business suits, blouses, purses, shoes and accessories that will be donated to local women preparing for job interviews. Cash donations that will be used to purchase similar items can also be made. These contributions will benefit the organizations’ Suits for Success program.

In addition, on July 2, MDwise associates will be offering mock interviews and resume reviews to Dress for Success clients entering the Indianapolis employment field.

“We are excited for the opportunity to support some of Indianapolis’ underserved women through our support of Dress for Success,” said Lindsey Lux, vice president of operations for MDwise. “There is nothing more empowering than entering a job interview feeling confident not only about your skills but your appearance. We’re humbled that our associates will have the chance to help instill this confidence in women looking for jobs in our community.”
