Your personal career theme and personal narrative
ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY CLASSES
Startup Institute Community Classes aim to extend tech education and career training to the greater community of Boston, at the same time supporting mission-driven nonprofits in our city. Proceeds from these events go to programming and scholarships that support inclusion in the tech sector. This month's featured nonprofit is Dress For Success, an organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools needed to thrive in work and in life. Interested in this org? You can get involved here.
Your $5 admission fee will be donated to Dress For Success and used to further the education and careers of women in our city. Want to give more? Check out the Dress For Success wish list on Amazon Smile to donate in-demand clothing items directly to their Boston boutique.
