Engaging to make a difference for good whenever and wherever we can, our charitable branch, Vionic Cares, has delivered shipments of our PRO line of footwear (designed with healthcare workers in mind) to front-line hospitals in New York City, San Francisco and New Orleans, along with a selection of our podiatrist-designed slip-in orthotic inserts to bring “the Vionic difference” to shoes these heroes already own. It’s our way of being able to say thanks and help with their long hours on the job.
To celebrate International Women’s day 2020, Team Vionic gathered to view a TEDx Talk on the importance of advancing workplace equality by Shelley Zalis. As the CEO of The Female Quotient, she believes that gender equality is a social and economic imperative.
Inspired by Zalis’s work, we discussed how we could further support women in the workplace and brainstormed concrete actions we could take. We even wore our commitments on our sleeve, thanks to the International Women’s Day T-shirts created by our very own graphic designer Maria!
At Vionic, we empower women through the organizations we support, such as Dress for Success San Francisco, which helps women on the rise put their best foot forward. If you would like to learn more about Dress for Success or to donate online click here.
Bruce Campbell, VIONIC co-founder, and COO, is also one of the founders of the Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Consortium Foundation, an organization dedicated to the advancement of research and cures for pediatric brain cancer: www.pnocfoundation.org
