Poet and activist Amanda Gorman, has partnered with cosmetic company Estée Lauder as their first-ever Global Changemaker ambassador. This will be a part of Estée Lauder’s new initiative in celebrating new voices, inspiring change, and championing leaders that are looking to make an impact on women everywhere.
“Amanda’s powerful presence and inspirational voice brings hope and confidence to the next generation of leaders. Together, we will create real and meaningful impact through literacy, voice, and self-expression.” said Jane Hertzmark Hudis, Executive Group President at the Estée Lauder Companies
As a trailblazer, Gorman will also curate the Estée Lauder Companies’ new ‘WRITING CHANGE’ Literacy Initiative where the company will donate $3 million within the next three years to advance literacy as a “pathway to equality, access, and social change.”
Gorman is honored to be working with the hopes that she will inspire women, girls, and everyone to be confident in themselves and their ability to disrupt systems of oppression.
“I am honored to partner with The Estée Lauder Companies to activate change through literacy, and to represent a brand founded by such an inspiring and daring woman,” Gorman stated. “Mrs. Estée Lauder shattered glass ceilings as a leader in business 75 years ago. Embracing this spirit, I am delighted that our partnership will help inspire women, girls, and all people around the world to do great things, to disrupt, to be confident, and to be future leaders in whatever path they take.”
Gorman will appear in Estée Lauder’s campaigns starting in 2022.
