Celebrating Our Team’s Moms
At Avon, our team’s mothers do it all—they cook, clean, and take care of their kids all while working from home. Let’s take a moment to recognize some of the super moms at Avon and see how they’ve balanced work with motherhood during the pandemic. These moms are truly inspirational!
“The pandemic brought such a shift to everyone’s lives - I have loved hearing the kids in the background of conference calls, appreciated my team’s flexibility when my own little one needs attention, and am continually amazed at the strength and resilience of mothers and grandmothers here at Avon. I hope we will always be supportive of each other and our extended work family.”
- Sarah, Supply Chain
“We were all of a sudden stuck at home, changing from one set of pajamas to the next, eating snack after snack all while I worked from whichever room was the quietest. Life for my husband, a first responder, never changed so Lucy and I built forts where we played board games while answering emails and mixed up cookie dough on lunch breaks. Lucy made guest appearances on countless meetings where coworkers welcomed her smiling face and laughter. Sometimes you’ll still hear her in the background wanting to say hi to my work friends. Needless to say, we mastered the art of multitasking and made memories…together.”
- Ashley, IT
“I would like to write in to recognize Adriana Ariga as an incredible leader and mother. Watching her successfully juggle the ever-growing nature of the business and still be super mom at the end of the day to her fun-loving son. It is truly inspiring. A true queen in both departments!”
- Lindsey, Learning & Development, recognizing Adriana, Director of Learning & Development
“Working from home full-time can be a challenge at times with virtual school going on down the hall or Elmo's World on repeat downstairs. Being able to occasionally enjoy lunch with my boys or see their faces more often, opposed to working outside of the home, makes it all worth the while!”
- Autumn, Sales at Avon Care Center
“I would like to celebrate and honor all the working moms in the Avon network. Being a working mom, myself, this past year has tested limits I never knew existed! I know firsthand how hard it has been, and I am in awe of all us moms who are making it work day in and day out. On the same token, this past year has been a gift. Being able to be present in my children’s lives - whether it be having lunch together, picking my son up from school, or sharing a hug and kiss mid-day has helped me create memories that otherwise would never have happened. So, I raise my cup of coffee to all the moms across the organization and wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day!
