Get to Know Working Wardrobes
I’m Karen Ladika and as Administrative Assistant for Working Wardrobes, I work on the ‘frontlines’ of our organization. Each day, I manage phone calls, in-person client appointments, and tours of our Career Success Center (with COVID health guidelines in place, of course!)
Essentially, I am the first point of contact for clients to receive the workforce readiness services we provide so they can find jobs in this challenging economy, and for people interested in learning more about our work and our mission.
I love my job, I love our clients, and I love our community. What saddens me is that more and more women are turning to Working Wardrobes to help them find jobs due to the pandemic. Many of the industries in which they worked were impacted the most by COVID. And thousands more women left the workforce to care for their families when child care centers closed, or when children were forced to learn from a distance.
