At Eva NYC, we believe in being kind to the planet, animals and each other. International Women’s Day is an opportunity to embrace all the facets and intersections of being a woman. Hear from the amazing women behind Eva NYC about how they honor this day, as well as the men who uplift and advocate for us every day.
Reuben Carranza - Chief Executive Officer
As we celebrate International Women’s Day, I am reminded of the power and the privilege of being part of an organization where our Eva NYC brand is led by a talented female President – Jane Moran and, where the executive leadership team is comprised of with 6 out of 9 members are women.
We work in the hair category and broader beauty industry and the daily insights, choices and strategies are enhanced by the 75%+ female employee base – our team reflects the primary consumer of our products and having an organization led by, and comprised of women gives us an incredible competitive advantage.
Aaliyah Manning - Community Engagement Coordinator
“IWD is a time to celebrate, uplift, and learn from the women next to me. It reminds me how strong and capable women are, like my mother who served 24 years in the U.S. Army and has her PhD. Or my sister who is a mother, business owner, and advocate for her son with autism. We all derive from women. As a collective, women are world-changers, record-breakers, CEO's, and so much more. I'm proud to be a woman and love the environment at Eva NYC surrounded by majority of women who work together every day.”
Jamie Richards - CSR + Sustainability Lead
“International Women's Day means making space for women where it has previously been a challenge. I work in STEM, and I don't take it for granted that my work is respected and appreciated. This has not always been the case and International Women's Day is a great time to reflect on those women who made this possible.”
Bren Bondoc - Customer Experience Manager
“Celebrating International Women’s Day always brings to mind the powerful women in my life who have taught me to be a better man. I have been blessed in my career and my life to be surrounded by such wise, strong and inspiring mentors, most of whom were women. Paraphrasing Mrs. Obama, when we include AND support women, there is no limit to what we can do!”
Gianne Doherty - Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Experience
“It means reflecting on and celebrating the accomplishments of the women before me, acknowledging how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go. It's the gift of women + this day that inspires me to continue my work in advocating for equality and equity for us in the workplace, not only as the Director of DEI at Eva NYC, but beyond in my own life.”
