The 13th annual Trade Secrets will be a hybrid fundraising event benefiting JVS Human Services’ Women to Work program on Thursday, November 11. There will be a limited in-person event at the Detroit Marriott Troy, as well as a virtual program running simultaneously online*. 

Your support of Trade Secrets provides women in our community vital tools for changing careers and resources for re-entering the workforce after significant, extended absences. Your donation enables women to receive valuable career direction, computer training and job search strategies, in turn empowering them to achieve personal success with renewed skills and confidence, and the ability to support themselves and their families.
