Doral donates work attire for Ana G. Méndez University System students as part of its "Style a Student" program
Also delivered educational seminars on leadership and human resources.

As part of their commitment with professional women in all their stages, Doral Bank celebrated for the second time their program Style a Student, which donates work attire to college students with limited resources and helps integrate them to the labor force.

The event, celebrated at Doral's Leadership Center, gathered students from Universidad del Turabo, Universidad Metropolitana and Universidad del Este, who also received educational talks by Doral's Professional Resources.

Tanya Vélez, VP of talent development and management at Doral Bank, gave tips on mastering your job interview, focusing on what interviewers look for with specific examples on "homeruns" and "don'ts". Also, Dr. Ilia Rodríguez, SVP of Administration at Doral, provided essential information on leadership and skills.

"Our commitment lies on empowering and supporting women's development as future leaders. This program links experienced women with the entrepreneurial future of Puerto Rico to give them the help they need as they enter the workforce," said Lucienne Gigante, SVP Marketing, Public Relations and Community at Doral Bank.

The garments were donated by women entrepreneurs who participated of a series of events and seminars offered by the organization RED de Empresarias y Mujeres Profesionales of the Industrial Association and Chamber of Commerce of Puerto Rico, allied to Doral in this initiative.

Doral established a relationship with RED approximately two years ago with the goal of multiplying their impact on women empowerment.

The women interested in donating their clothes for this program can do so at Doral Bank's central offices, located at Roosevelt Avenue.
