Diversity & Inclusion

Avon has a rich heritage of embracing diversity and inclusion, with a particular focus on its vision to be "the company for women." The company is committed to developing a workplace environment that attracts, develops, retains, and advances a culturally diverse workforce throughout its global operations. This commitment also extends to supporting and working with suppliers that are owned and operated by diverse groups. The company has reaffirmed this commitment by integrating diversity and inclusion as a core business strategy aligned with the company's values.

In 2010, Avon established a global inclusion office as a center of excellence to oversee all aspects of this work across the company. The office focuses on driving business results through inclusion, empowerment and the advancement of top talent everywhere Avon operates using the four key strategies, outlined below:

  • Embedding diversity and inclusion into core talent processes at all levels
  • Cultivating an inclusive environment to maximize Associate contributions
  • Leveraging diversity and inclusion as a business growth accelerator
  • Enhancing the Avon brand and reputation through a strong diversity and inclusion commitment

Avon's Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) are important enablers to advancing the company's diversity and inclusion commitment as well. ARGs serve as liaisons between Associates and management to share best practices, increase awareness about the business need for and impacts of a diverse workforce, and develop a more inclusive workplace.
