New Avon has partnered with Gyrl Wonder, a professional pipeline initiative giving rise to ambitious young women of color between the ages of 17–22.
Similar to Avon promoting female entrepreneurship and inspiring businesses for thousands of Representatives, Gyrl Wonder equips the young woman who has found her passion with the toolkit necessary to turn her interests into a career.
Gyrl Wonder’s mission is to empower young women of color through social impact, career exploration and objective alignment. They provide access and resources necessary for them to successfully enter a competitive workforce while teaching them how to leverage these tools to reach their personal and professional goals.
New Avon has donated over $100,000 worth of cosmetics, skincare, haircare, personal care and other essential products to the “gyrls” of Gyrl Wonder to support its mission pillars of self-care, self-image, empowerment, development and service. Avon also plans to work with Gyrl Wonder for future workshops and internship opportunities.
“Avon has championed amazing women for over a century, and we are proud to support Gyrl Wonder and the young women of color they champion,” said Avon CEO Paul Yi. “The synergy between Avon and Gyrl Wonder makes our partnership an excellent collaboration. At Avon, our goal is to celebrate women’s power to make a beautiful and positive impact in the world. We love celebrating the talented and passionate ‘gyrls’ of Gyrl Wonder.”
