VIEW BIO
At Coty, we are passionate about creating a world where people are free to express themselves. Driven by our purpose to ‘Celebrate and Liberate the Diversity of Your Beauty’ and the passion of our employees, we created We Stand For You, a program with an ambition to tackle the prejudice and discrimination that stands in the way of self-expression - based on gender, sexual orientation, disability and ethnicity - and partnered with Global Citizen, to develop an innovative approach to employee engagement and social purpose based on activism.
In just 7 months, nearly 2000 Coty employees across 40 markets have taken 8000 actions to tackle gender inequality through #WeStandForYou!
EMPLOYEE VOICE



We partnered with international advocacy group, Global Citizen, to develop an innovative approach to employee engagement and social purpose based on activism. Powered by Global Citizen’s technology, the We Stand For Youplatform is the first-of-its-kind employee social action tool for employees to put pressure on world leaders to increase funding and change discriminatory laws and policies that don’t deliver for all.

10 lucky Coty activists recently had the opportunity to see the impact of their actions at the Global Citizen festival, as well as learn more about our partnership with Global Citizen and meet a group of young change-makers called the Curtis Scholars.

They witnessed how our collective actions can drive change - with new commitments from the governments of Denmark and the Netherlands on girls’ education and of Gambia committing to repeal and reform discriminatory laws. This is an amazing achievement that will affect the lives of millions and we’re proud to join Global Citizens around the world in this effort.
Watch a glimpse of our employee activists’ journey in the short video.
