Essentials 4 Job Security

SIA WISF “Essentials 4 Job Security” Giveback

Join the Women in Security Forum in Supporting Dress for Success Southern Nevada (DFSSN) at ISC West

The SIA Women in Security Forum (WISF) is calling upon our friends throughout the Security Industry and beyond to help women achieve financial independence. By supporting Essentials 4 Job Security Giveback, you can personally make a difference in helping the women of southern Nevada build careers and become self-sufficient.

The Situation

Nevada’s female labor force was hit hard by the pandemic. The rise in unemployment over 2020 was 78 percent worse for women than for men. Gradual improvements are being made, yet women in Nevada’s service-centric, entertainment sector are still reeling from pandemic-related woes and are most at risk for heightened income loss and even poverty.

How We Can Help

Our partnership with Dress for Success Souther Nevada (DFSSNV) will help women who are trying to get back into the workforce. Through acts of kindness and donations, WISF can help women feel more confident and self-assured as they take steps to improve their lives.

Items Needed:

  • Portfolios and organizers
  • Mints and lip balm
  • Water bottles
  • Accessories – jewelry, belts, handbags, work-appropriate shoes, etc.
  • Plus sized clothes
  • Unopened travel toiletries (shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, lotion)
  • Unused cosmetics for people of color
  • Notes of encouragement
