Doral donates work attire for students as part of its "Style a Student" program
The bank also offered educational tools for the students' first professional experience.

Once again demonstrating its commitment to the professional woman in all the stages of her life, Doral Bank held for the third time the celebration of the Style a Student program, which donates professional clothing to college students with limited resources to help them integrate themselves into the professional world.

Twenty students from Universidad del Turabo, Universidad Metropolitana and Universidad del Este attended the activity celebrated at Doral Bank's Centro de Liderazgo.

"Our commitment is to empower and support the development of women as future leaders. This program links experienced women with future entrepreneurs and professionals to give them the support they need to dive into the professional world," said Lucienne Gigante, senior vice president of marketing, public relations and community of Doral Bank.

During the event the students also received a series of educational lectures offered by professional women who donated their time to provide mentoring to young women. The topic of leadership fell to Dr. Ilia Rodriguez, senior vice president of administration at Doral Bank, who offered skills and leadership in the workplace. Marta Colón, from Buena Gente & Co., gave a workshop on social skills and professional etiquette, and the beauty brand Lancôme offered professional makeup techniques.

The clothing delivered was donated by women entrepreneurs who participated in a series of events and lectures offered by the network professionals of Business and Professional Women Association of Manufacturers and the Chamber of Commerce of Puerto Rico, allies of Doral in this effort. Doral partnered with the network about three years ago in order to multiply the mission of empowering women.

Those interested in donating their work clothes for this program can deliver it to Doral Bank's central offices located at Avenida Roosevelt.
