Empowered women empower women. This belief serves as the foundation on which all work, internally and externally, rests at Mary Kay Inc. This mantra inspires Mary Kay’s tireless efforts to hire and promote women in leadership positions, support the Women’s Empowerment Principles established by UN Women and UN Global Compact, and develop entrepreneurship and economic opportunities to increase women’s participation and combat gender bias everywhere. If we lift one, we lift all. On International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 that message rings especially poignant.

The theme of this year’s IWD is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.” While I always wish to encourage our peers in the private and public sectors to amplify women’s voices, it is just as important to challenge ourselves as we challenge others. In 2019, Mary Kay launched in partnership with six UN agencies, the Women’s Entrepreneurship Accelerator, a strategic initiative designed to inspire, educate, and empower women entrepreneurs around the world. Our mission is to remove barriers to economic freedom for countless women in underserved areas over the next ten years. Our hope is that, in turn, their example as leaders will empower the next generation of girls.

Today and every day, we must work to achieve an equal future. A world free from violence, gender bias and discriminations. Women can’t wait. #IWD2021 #GenerationEquality
