This year, Avon will be making product donations to the annual Gyrl Wonder Leadership Academy, which is the organization's experience of empowerment, education and relationship-building. The donation supports Gyrl Wonder's mission pillar of self-care, self-image, empowerment, development and service. In addition, Avon's Black Team Member Diversity Network will be offering speakers for the academy and other important career development touchpoints Gyrl Wonder holds throughout 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."
"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."
