As we celebrate our anniversary and 135 years of beauty, we honor our founder David H. McConnell – a pioneer, a visionary and a champion of empowering women through economic opportunity. And his mission is as relevant today as it was in 1886. From the first bottle sold by the California Perfume Company 135 years ago to the newest super-trending makeup and skin care, take a look at the Avon story and how we continue to make life beautiful.
Women Of Color
Avon has empowered women for the past 135 years, and we are proud to work with organizations that support women. We recently partnered with Gyrl Wonder—a professional pipeline initiative that provides ambitious young women of color with resources, access and advice to help them successfully join the work force.
Gyrl Wonder’s mission—to empower young women of color through social impact, career exploration and objective alignment—works beautifully with Avon’s mission to celebrate women's power to make a beautiful and positive impact in the world.
