Avon has the unique ability to educate and mobilize people worldwide on issues that are of vital importance to women. That’s why supporting women’s causes globally is at our core as a company.
Our focus areas are breast cancer education and ending violence against women. In these areas, we aim to accelerate progress, accountability and discovery, while also reducing the social stigma that sometimes keeps these issues hidden. We take a woman-centric approach on projects to break traditional barriers and empower women to build a better future by taking control of their well-being. We do this, in conjunction with the Avon Foundation for Women (“Avon Foundation”), through Avon fundraising events and sales of special products in our markets around the world, educational programming and making grants to NGOs and medical institutions.
