(L to R) Jerri, Cyndi, and Bonni discuss the sustainability of Working Wardrobes.

The Sustainability Discussion

Thirty-one years ago, Jerri Rosen founded Working Wardrobes to help men, women, young adults, and Veterans get on their feet and back to work so they can achieve the Power of a Paycheck. Today, she is nearing retirement and ready to pursue her post-CEO passions at the end of this year.

Jerri recently sat down with incoming Working Wardrobes CEO, Bonni Pomush, and Cyndi Karapogosian, Board Chair and District President & Professional Talent Solutions at Robert Half, to discuss Rebuilding Careers and the future and sustainability of Working Wardrobes.

These dynamic women share their experiences and thoughts about the continued growth of Working Wardrobes. Listen to the podcast here.
