Ahead of Giving Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex and her patronage Smart Works partnered with Cuyana on a women’s empowerment initiative that provides a work wardrobe essential – the tote bag – to 500 of the charity’s clients, enhancing their readiness for the workplace and providing them with the confidence they need ahead of their interview.
“Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of witnessing the magic of Smart Works – womens’ confidence and lives transformed.” said Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex. “Smart Works invests in women so they know they can thrive in any workplace, and Cuyana is a company that is by women and for women, so this feels like the perfect fit. Similar to the Smart Set collection we created many years ago for Smart Works, this collaboration will support women in the UK as they mobilize back into the workforce. I am proud to bring these two together to further our shared mission of uplifting and empowering women all around the globe.”
