Advocating for Female Empowerment, Entrepreneurship and Equality Around the World

Mary Kay female leadership attend global conferences to help further women’s issues.

Advancing the status of women everywhere is at the heart of our company and our founder’s legacy, which is why we’re committed to collaborating with world leaders to help women pave a path to independence, financial security and a more equal workplace. By actively participating in important international conferences and conversations, we are working tirelessly to ensure women everywhere have a path to empowerment.

During the International Women’s Forum World Leadership Conference in Toronto, Canada, leading female architects, advocates, catalysts, and pioneers of change from more than 50 countries came to together to discuss the challenges that face women today and how best to approach them. Mary Kay’s Michelle Haurilak, Director, PR, Digital & Product Marketing at Mary Kay Canada, was on-hand to speak and introduce a session on Becoming a Dangerous Woman, an interview with television powerhouse and editorial director of TEDWomen, Pat Mitchell.

At the Reykjavik Global Forum in Reykjavik, Iceland, Julia Simon, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary at Mary Kay, joined other female leaders to discuss and share ideas and solutions on how to further advance society, increase equality between women and men and promote and positively develop the number of women in leadership positions. While at the Forum, Simon also attended a Leadership Luncheon hosted by Concordia, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to actively fostering, elevating, and sustaining cross-sector partnerships for social impact. The luncheon tackled themes such as investing in female entrepreneurs, women’s global health, women’s political leadership and women’s education.

Our work is not done. We are committed to continuing to have the critical conversations, lifting women up, and ensuring the current and future generations of women thrive.
