CTW Workplace Image Institute

The Clothes That Work Workplace Image Institute is a series of workshops designed to equip both job seekers and the newly employed with the knowledge and skills they need to create a professional image that will help them gain and maintain employment.  These classes emphasize the fact that one’s professional image is composed of more than just clothes; image comprises communication skills, behaviors in the workplace, digital footprint, and financial health.

The Workplace Image Institute formally launched with a breakfast event on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Click here to view pictures from the morning’s activities.
