International Women’s Day Celebration

In continued celebration of International Women’s Day, we want to shine a light on the work that we’re doing and that we encourage others to get involved in. As a proud and active member of WIT – Women in Toys, Licensing & Entertainment (WIT), we are always challenging ourselves to use our platform in the continued fight for gender equality and advancement of women, in the workplace and around the world.

Through our work with NGO CAPTIVATING INTERNATIONAL, we have partnered to provide sustainable, skill-building solutions for impoverished women in Western China, with 120 women graduating from the most recent My First Job program, and more programs underway. We have also recently become a supporter of GirlBoss New Zealand, a community in New Zealand encouraging young women to be the change they want to see in society, through advocacy and leadership.

Last year, our COO Anna Mowbray and Global Brand Director Aneisha Vieira were lucky enough to deliver a workshop on entrepreneurship to the Girl Scouts of America on what it means to be a girl boss. These are just a few of the ways we are driving change, and we encourage you to do so as well, no matter how big or small the effort.

Together we can uplift all women.

ZURU Women are certainly a key driving force behind our success!

This International Women’s Day, we’re more grateful than ever for the amazing women at the helm of ZURU’s incredible growth. We pride ourselves in fostering a company culture of opportunities and equality, with a significant number of our leadership team being women, including New Product Development, Finance, Sourcing, HR, and our very own COO, Anna Mowbrayheading up global operations. In fact, our workforce has grown to be 70% female and reflects our commitment to women’s advancement and forging gender equality.

There is no doubt that our ZURU Women are certainly a key driving force behind our success!
