The second feature highlights a brand new SHE Certified company, Next Day Animations, a one-stop shop of expert animators, voiceover actors, writers, and producers. Their explainer videos are used for everything from video-based learning to corporate internal communication to marketing for small businesses and nonprofits.

"We are just so excited to join this community of organizations working towards equity in the workplace!"
We’re Next Day Animations, a certified B Corp who makes amazing explainer videos. Our explainer videos are used for everything from video-based learning to corporate internal communication to marketing for small businesses and nonprofits.
Explainer videos are increasingly recognized as one of the best ways to communicate, allowing your audience to absorb your message through visuals, sound and text simultaneously. No idea is too big, small, complicated, simple, or technical- if you need something explained, an explainer video can do it!

Which SHE marks have you been certified for?
We have been certified for SHEruns™!
Introduce us to your team.
Our team is made up of amazing people from across the U.S. and the world! We are illustrators, writers, designers, producers, marketers, sales people, and more. You can meet the team here.
Why are you proud to be a woman-owned/run/creatively-led company?
We know that due to ingrained sexism and misogyny in our culture, there is a major gap when it comes to women in management positions. We’re proud that we’ve been women-run from the beginning, and excited to honor our amazing team of women in management and leadership! Many work cultures lean into traditionally masculine ideas of what leadership looks like, with more competitive or commanding styles. Our collaborative, open culture allows people of all genders to lean into their unique strengths and experience to gain leadership skills and take on management roles.
What benefits have you experienced being a woman-run company?
By having women in leadership, we are tapping into the amazing, unique skill sets they bring to the table that may otherwise be overlooked in male dominated spaces. Leadership can look a lot of different ways, and we benefit immensely from having a variety of leadership styles guiding our teams and organization as a whole. Also, having someone in management who shares a similar background helps women and gender diverse people feel comfortable, listened to, and seen at all levels of the organization. Finally, you can’t be what you can’t see - having women leaders lets other women know that long-term success is possible for them, too.
In what ways other than gender equity do you think your company is making the world a better place?
In addition to now being a proud SHE Certified Company, we are a certified B Corp and Great Place to Work, which means we’ve met the highest standards of social/environmental responsibility and employee satisfaction. In addition, every year, we invest in people and organizations who are doing great work through our grant and scholarship programs.
