Gyrl Wonder's mission is to empower young women of color through social impact, career exploration and objective alignment. The initiative provides 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.
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."
