Celebrate International Women’s Day with chocolate that makes an impact.
THE MARKHAM & FITZ IMPACT:
100% WOMAN OWNED
Not only are there more CEOs named David than women CEOs... but only 2% of Women-Owned businesses break the $1M mark.*
We are one of them.
This year's International Women's Day focus is #EmbraceEquity. We are proud to be woman owned and led, as our female ownership and visionary role defies multiple odds of contemporary business statistics.
We are proud to be in the 2% of women-owned business that have surpassed $1M in sales. But we hope in doing so that we are tipping the scales and leading a path for more women to lead.
769 FEMALE PRODUCERS IMPACTED
While women are still the minority in cacao production globally, the legacy of women across the world is one of investment in family and community.
"Women’s economic participation and their ownership and control of productive assets speeds up development, helps overcome poverty, reduces inequalities and improves children’s nutrition, health, and school attendance. Women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men."*
Our investment in female cacao producers impacts their communities & beyond because of the way they work, care, and lead.
WOMEN CENTRIC PEACEBUILDING
When you support Markham & Fitz, you are also investing in women-centric peacebuilding via Innovations In Peacebuilding, our primary giving partner. IPI highlights the crucial role of women in peacebuilding. Women have played a key role in every step of the peace building process that has demobilized hundreds of armed group members in the DR Congo.
