International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate the social, economic, and cultural achievements of women. From offices to the home, we’re so grateful for all the ladies out there making the world a better place.

We imagine a more inclusive world that encourages and supports women in all their goals. The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation helps support women by investing in education and small business owners. These efforts ignite sustainable change in the lives of women and those around them. These two initiatives also support the foundation’s pillars of Developing Enterprise and Championing Education.
Get inspired at a special upcoming International Women’s Day panel featuring Young Living brand partners and employees who empower and celebrate women. Find out the challenges they’ve faced, how they overcome them, and what they are doing now to help other women rise. This panel will be hosted by Rita Morrill at 10 a.m. MT on March 8, 2023 on Facebook live.

Developing Enterprise

Women entrepreneurs make significant contributions to economic growth but are often overlooked and underpaid, which is one of the reasons we are passionate about the Developing Enterprise Program.

Our Developing Enterprise program champions women through entrepreneurship by:

  • Awarding capacity building grants to women-led enterprises.
  • Investing in vocational skills training and income generating opportunities.
  • Connecting talented women-led artisan groups from around the world to mindful consumers through the Young Living global marketplace.

Championing Education

The Young Living Foundation champions women through education by:

  • Funding the building, restoration, and expansion of schools to ensure that access to a safe education is available to as many as possible.
  • Working with partners who help youth stay in school and provide them with the support they need to overcome underachievement.
  • Equipping students with tools to drive community change and build self-confidence.
