Welcome to the next installment of our Get to know... series - where we invite you to learn more about the amazing companies that make up our SHE Certified Community™. This feature highlights Joydays - a Certified SHEowns™ business that is disrupting the medical diabetes shelves with a modern brand that makes blood sugar friendly foods. We had them answer some questions and tell us more about Joydays in the interview below!
Introduce your company!
Joydays is excited to share on-the-go packs of low-glycemic cookies that help people eat in a blood-sugar balanced way. All our cookies are high and fiber and contain only 3g of sugar per serving. They're good for you and DELICIOUS so you can indulge without the guilt.
What is your mission as a company?
Joydays was created with one simple mission: to provide low glycemic, better-for-you snacks that are still packed with those classic flavors you know and love.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to joyfully indulge in their favorite snacks without compromising health or having to worry about spikes in their blood sugar.
Show off your product line.
We have a small but mighty product line with three delicious flavors: Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, and Peanut Butter.
Introduce us to your team!
Led by the Founder and CEO, Amy Cohn, Joydays is led by a team of advisors and experts that help bring Joydays to life. You can learn more about the team here: https://getjoydays.com/pages/about
Which SHE mark(s) have you been certified for?
We have been Certified SHEowns™!
Being a woman-led company allows us to challenge norms, break barriers, and create a supportive and inclusive work environment.
Why are you proud to be a women-led company?
As a woman-owned/run/creatively-led company, we take immense pride in the unique perspectives and diverse experiences we bring to the table. We believe that our gender should never be a limitation but rather a source of strength and innovation. Being a woman-led company allows us to challenge norms, break barriers, and create a supportive and inclusive work environment.
We are proud to foster a culture of empowerment and equality, where everyone's voice is valued and amplified. Our commitment to gender diversity extends beyond our leadership team and permeates every aspect of our company. We believe that diversity drives creativity and fosters innovation, enabling us to deliver exceptional products and services to our customers.
What benefits have you experienced being a women led business?
Being a woman-led company also allows us to serve as role models and inspire the next generation of women leaders. We embrace the opportunity to show that women can excel in any industry, defy stereotypes, and achieve their goals through hard work and determination. By sharing our experiences and supporting other women entrepreneurs, we aim to create a more equitable and inclusive business landscape.
In what ways other than gender equity do you think your company is making the world a better place?
We hope to reduce the feeling of being otherized. We believe that everyone should have the chance to joyfully indulge in their favorite snacks without compromising health or having to worry about spikes in their blood sugar. Having chronic conditions ourselves, we saw there was nothing accessible out there for us that fit our needs and tasted like the foods we missed.
