At Aveda, we have a lot to celebrate on International Women’s Day: globally, 73% of our employees, including 67% of our leadership team, are women. Not only that, but within our network, we have women leaders who specialize in chemistry, pharmacognosy, aroma creation, education, artistry, sustainable package design, finance, marketing, management, manufacturing, art direction…and the list goes on! Though our degrees (or schooling or studies) may have differed, we were all drawn to the brand because of one common passion: the Aveda mission to care for the world. At Aveda, we are empowered to live this mission every day, extending the notion of care to how we treat one another, how we treat the planet, and how we approach the creation of every single one of our products.
This International Women’s Day, we are celebrating our entire Aveda team: the amazing women who have achieved so many milestones, and the men who have shown their support every step of the way. We’ve asked some of Aveda’s most inspiring leaders to share what International Women’s Day means to them, who has inspired them, and how they live the Aveda mission in their daily lives.
