Since 1947, Dior has always been keen to put women first.
Maison Dior confirms today it's commitment to the cause and also celebrates the powerful sorority led by current feminist (R)evolutions. This firm stance is in line with the works of Maria Grazia Chiuri from “We should all be feminists” (2016) to “Sisterhood is powerful” (2019).
This is a unique, international mentoring program, based on the union of Maison Dior’s internal expertise and an excellent educational process. The initiative is dedicated to young women.
Launched in 2017, more than 300 mentees were already accompanied by the Maison Dior mentors and guide the brilliant students from Fashion, Business or Engineering Schools.
The Women@Dior program is structured around two main points:
Exclusive and inclusive. Today, Women@Dior is a community of 300 young women (increasing to 400 in 2019) across eleven cities around the world (New York, Paris, Shanghai, London, Seoul, etc): an exclusive and inclusive community that will open this year to men, allowing students to benefit from two mentors, one woman and one man who work for the Maison Dior.
High social impact, in partnership with local associations. In aligning with the CWS, Women@Dior also opens a new chapter: this year, teams are invited to contribute to a project of high social impact, in partnership with local associations working to women empowerment. By offering skill-based mentorships, Dior intends to put its values into action, in keeping with its commitment to support the United Nations charter for “Women Empowerment Principles”, which the LVMH Group and its Houses signed publicly in 2013.
Women@Dior is an under-invitation only program. All participants are selected on three criteria: talent, ambition and generosity. They are all untied in the notion that their professional success is related to the sorority.
