Celebrating 54 Years Of Empowering Women!


Today we celebrate the 54th anniversary of Mary Kay and the women who the company continues to inspire and empower today! After being with Mary Kay myself for 22 years, it’s pretty amazing to think one woman’s bold vision has changed the lives of countless women for the better. I told this story at Leadership Conference and Seminar this year, but I first learned about Mary Kay as I was riding home from 7th grade football practice in the back of a pink Cadillac. Fast forward to 2017 and here I am, working for a company that has empowered women for 54 years.

In 1963, our legendary founder, Mary Kay Ash, turned the male-dominated workplace on its head and built a business where women could excel and enrich their lives. She built a business where women were in control of their own future, could be their own boss, earn their worth and set their own schedule.

“I envisioned a company in which any woman could become as successful as she wanted to be.”

—Mary Kay Ash

Fifty-four years later, thanks to that unequalled business opportunity and outstanding products, millions of women around the world in nearly 40 countries have achieved success beyond their imaginations and have become part of an amazing community of sisterhood.

So, we truly celebrate our independent sales force, the inspiring entrepreneurs who make Mary Kay everything it is today. From the stay-at-home mom starting a Mary Kay business to secure a better financial future for her children to the new graduate looking for a career on her own terms to the working woman dreaming of a better future and everyone in between, we support you and know Mary Kay Ash herself would be proud of how you’ve turned her vision into a reality! I had the opportunity meet so many of you during Seminar, and every day I was inspired by how each of you are making your entrepreneurial dreams come true.

This anniversary, we couldn’t be more thankful for our fearless founder, strong heritage, unstoppable sales force members and their loyal customers.

Please share what you’ve accomplished or learned through Mary Kay so we can celebrate 54 years together!
