Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is in our DNA
When Mary Kay Ash started her company in 1963, her goal was clear: create a company that offers opportunity for women who had been denied it in corporate America. A place where “thinking like a woman” would be considered an asset – not a liability. While the mission started with women in mind, its ripple effect resulted in a company culture inclusive of anyone who had been overlooked, underestimated, or ignored.
Since 1963, and 1978 in Canada, our mission has not wavered. Our goal is to foster an inclusive environment where all members of the Mary Kay community are treated equitably, can contribute to and benefit from the company’s mission, and can fully leverage their strengths in pursuit of their greatest aspirations.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are inherently a part of our corporate DNA.
With this strong foundation, we continuously work toward forging an inclusive, diverse, and equitable culture in every community we touch. We know Mary Kay Ash would not want us to sit idly by. She would want us to speak up, grow and expand our efforts to continue making our Mary Kay workplace and the world, a better place.
