The Avon Company is partnering with Gyrl Wonder, an initiative that equips women of color between the ages of 17-22 with the tools necessary to turn their ambitions into careers. This is the second annual collaboration for the two organizations.
“Avon is thrilled to carry on our partnership with Gyrl Wonder,” said Avon CEO Paul Yi. “As Avon celebrates its 135th year of empowering women, we are grateful for this opportunity to continue supporting Gyrl Wonder’s endeavors to uplift and amplify young girls of color.”
In its 2021 initiative, Avon will be making donations to the annual Gyrl Wonder Leadership Academy, where participants experience empowerment, education and relationship-building. Avon’s Black Team Member Diversity Network will also be supplying speakers for the academy through the year.
“Our partnership with Avon this past year has been monumental, helping amplify our self-care pillar,” said Gyrl Wonder Founder Tola Lawal. “As we enter year two of our partnership, we are beyond excited to continue our work with the iconic brand to provide our young women with beauty and health products that have been essential in creating a sense of normalcy and calm during these chaotic and uncertain times.”
