Success Story: Joi Gordon: Lawyer Leads Organization That Helps Disadvantaged Women Achieve Successful Careers

JoiJoi Gordon, 38, is the international CEO of Dress for Success. The non-profit organization helps low-income women land corporate jobs by providing them with donated clothing, including suits, heels and pearls, as well as other services to help clients obtain jobs and remain employed.

Before becoming the CEO of Dress for Success, Gordon, a lawyer, was an assistant district attorney in the Bronx County Criminal Court. She saw Dress for Success on television and realized it was an organization she could give her suits to. Later, she was asked to serve on the board of directors, which eventually evolved into a 7 year career, first running the organization's New York office and now running the worldwide office.
