November 2020 Speaker Series General Meeting – Kate Stephens of Smart Works

5 November, 2020 @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm


“For me, every single day is about helping other women and that’s a privilege.” Kate Stephens

Our November guest, Kate Stephens, has graciously accepted a second invitation to address KCWC after her original May appearance was a victim of Covid 19 cancellation. We are therefore doubly delighted to welcome her to speak via webinar.
Kate Stephens was a director at one of the country’s largest PR firms when she decided to follow her father’s advice: “Do what you love”. So, in 2014, she transitioned to the charity sector and became the CEO of Smart Works, a UK charity that provides dressing and coaching services for unemployed women. Its ethos is simple: through careful collaboration, the transformative power of clothes is used to boost self-confidence and propel women back into the workplace. With clients referred from job centres, shelters, mental health charities and The Prince’s Trust, Smart Works leads women lacking self-esteem to find relief from their anxiety through styling, coaching and interview consultations. Now in multiple cities throughout the country, and heralded in 2017 as Social Action Charity of the Year, Smart Works has achieved impressive results that Ms. Stephens will share with us along with her own story. Information will be provided as to how our membership can assist Smart Works either with clothing donations, financial support or eventually volunteer service.

“There’s this magic moment when they look in the dressing room mirror, they smile and think ‘I can do this'” Kate Stephens
