LIVINGSTON, NJ Dress for Success Morris County, an organization focused on offering long-lasting solutions to enable disadvantaged women to break the cycle of poverty and to empower them to achieve economic independence has named Clint Wallace, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, North America at Sanofi as the Honoree of its 11th annual Transforming Lives Celebration, to take place on April 20 at Crystal Plaza.

“I am delighted to be this year’s honoree and consider it a privilege to be associated with Dress for Success – an effective organization that lives the spirit of individual empowerment by giving back every day,” said Wallace. “Their work has real impact in important ways not only by making a difference in women’s lives and the lives of those around them, but also for our communities and for every sponsor.  As a sponsor, Sanofi US is proud to take part in something that changes lives.”  

As in previous years, the 11th annual Transforming Lives Celebration will be a special evening that brings together a diverse group of women and men of all ages, backgrounds, and occupations. This year’s event will feature a networking format, cocktail hour, dessert extravaganza and silent auction.

Dress for Success serves more than 1400 women in northern New Jersey (including Morris and the surrounding nine counties), and has set an ambitious goal of increasing the number of women served in 2017 to 1500.  More than 40 percent of women who were without jobs in New Jersey in 2016 were unemployed for more than 27 weeks, and comprise the majority of the state’s low-wage workers.  The longer a woman is out of work, the less likely she is to obtain full-time employment.

“Dress for Success Morris County is pleased to honor Clint as a champion of diversity, an inspiring mentor to women and an active supporter of the community,” said Mary Jean Barnes, Executive Director.  “Clint’s dedication to mentoring and diversity is representative of what we do at Dress for Success Morris County, as we help to transform the lives of women who need a leg up to succeed professionally and personally.”
