Zonta Awards Centennial Community Award to Poised for Success

October 2019 
As Zonta clubs around the globe are celebrating Zonta International’s Centennial Anniversary by honoring local individuals who show outstanding commitment to empowering women in the community, we honor Gail Foster, Executive Director of Poised for Success.
Poised for Success is a non-profit organization serving the suburban Chicagoland area dedicated to the mission of providing, at no charge, interview and business appropriate clothing to women in the job market. In addition to providing business-appropriate clothing, Poised volunteers assist clients in building self-esteem and interview skills, as well as referrals to other local service organizations providing job-skills training and job placement. These services give their clients the self-confidence necessary to secure a job and move beyond the need for financial assistance.
We congratulate Gail on her ongoing commitment to women making way and thank her for her determination in making Poised for Success a true success on so many levels – especially for the clients, but also for the volunteers, the clothing donors, and the financial supporters.
