Soft Skills Workshop

At Dress Your Rights we create workshops to improve transversal skills and/or soft skills in order to add value and growth opportunities for individuals and their families. These workshops help to improve interaction, growth and stimulation both inside and outside of the workplace.

On August 25, 2018, a female empowerment workshop was held in the “Doña Marlen” sewing workshop, in Cartago, in which the seamstresses and members of their families participated.

5 hours of the specialized workshop on assertive communication, gender and self-esteem were developed.

The main objective of these activities is to create a sustainable consciousness from within the fashion industry, empowering at the individual level to generate collective empowerment.

Most of this group of women became unemployed when the textile manufacturing industry in Costa Rica closed due to aggressive competition from foreign countries. Today they enjoy a decent job, thanks to the new Conscious Fashion Industry that is growing stronger in our country.

We would like to thank the generosity of many people and allies such as The Agency, Haussmark, Tienda Espacio and the national designers who participated. Thanks to this support it was possible to donate a sewing machine to the participants of the workshop, which today is now a generator of decent work for 4 households.
