Women's Network

Updated March 8, 2021

In support of International Women’s Day, the BCEA challenges you! #ChooseToChallenge

As many of you know since the start of the year, the BCEA has already been challenging our industry on diversity, equity, and inclusion. We don't want to stop there so we added another layer to conitnue down the path of equality.

The BCEA Women’s Network is creating a drive to support Dress for Success Vancouver. The mission of Dress for Success is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

How can you help us support this?

Option 1 - Due to limitations of COVID-19, we have scheduled an appointment to do one drop off next month (April). So for the month of March we are asking that you email us at to schedule a drop off location of profession attire that we can donate as an association.

Option 2 - If you prefer to donate cash we suggest you visit their donate page at and simply send us an email that you participated so we make sure you or your organization is recognized at the end of the drive. This option also gives you an official donation receipt.

Option 3 - You can donate on our IWD Challenge payment page on our website and we will send in all the cash donated when we drop off the clothing to them next month!
