— Dr. Stephanie Hampton Credle, ACDN President

WASHINGTON, DC, U.S., February 16, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — On March 1, 2024, The Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits (ACDN) – a grassroots supporting organization based in Washington, DC – will host its 4th Annual National Smart&Sexy® Day virtual celebration from 11am – 3pm EST in honor of Women’s History Month. ACDN and nine (9) of their member organizations will host Smart&Sexy® events during March and April in communities across the U.S. aimed at equipping women who are unemployed and under-employed with professional development programs, tools, and resources needed to be successful in their employment endeavors. These events will both empower and inspire women – boosting their self-confidence, perception, and preparedness – so that they feel capable, confident and, most of all, employable. The Annual Smart&Sexy® Day celebration was launched in 2012 by ACDN – a national consortium of independent, community-based member organizations who provide professional development tools, training, and many times attire, to disadvantaged individuals – and is sponsored by Smart&Sexy®, one of the largest privately held lingerie companies in the country.

“We understand the challenges individuals face when re-entering the job market – especially in today’s workforce. Whether it’s during times of economic stability or uncertainty, the struggle remains. Our member organizations’ services are not just important but critical for those striving to secure employment, or better their current employment situation. The simple barriers of lacking appropriate clothing, having a relevant, strengths focused resume, or knowing how to confidently crush an in-person or virtual interview can create insurmountable obstacles for disadvantaged individuals, hindering their ability to make that crucial first impression in obtaining life-changing employment opportunities”, says April Jarrett, Executive Director of ACDN.

“Our grassroots, volunteer led member organizations serve over 25,000 individuals each year, assuring those residing in disadvantaged communities who are seeking self-sufficiency have an equal chance! ACDN’s National Smart&Sexy® Day event bring awareness to this important work and the impact ACDN member organizations are having in thousands of lives across the country.”

Throughout Women’s History Month, ACDN member organizations host dynamic Smart&Sexy® Day events aimed at empowering women to enhance their employment prospects and improve their lives. Through a combination of workforce training, professional image classes, and personalized support, our goal is to equip women with the tools they need to secure or advance their careers. Certain locations will also teach participants how to build a professional wardrobe on a budget, ensuring that every woman has the opportunity to shine in the workplace. This annual event is not just about looking good – it’s about feeling good, too! In addition to receiving Smart&Sexy® foundation garments, attendees also gain invaluable job-seeking skills training from local industry experts and dedicated volunteers. Together with Smart&Sexy®, ACDN and its member organizations are committed to supporting women on multiple levels.

Promoting individual, professional, and community growth opportunities during this annual event – and every day – is the mission of the Alliance of Career Development Nonprofits.

Special programming, including accurate bra fittings for complimentary foundational garments from Smart & Sexy®, will be held in the following cities during the months of March/April 2024:
