50+% of the
people in creative
positions are women
The SHEmakes mark is designed to recognize and highlight companies that include women wherever creation and innovation happens.
Nowadays, consumers are looking to feel seen and considered in the creation and innovation of a product or service and they want to know that a company is not just marketing to them, but also that their needs and perspective are being considered behind the scenes. We are past the era of stereotyping and into the era of inclusion.
In many cases the creative and innovative parts of a company are obvious, such as the branding or product design and creation, but in others, such as UI/UX or engineering, it's less-so.
Getting Certified SHEmakes allows companies in STEM, creative, food industries, and more to easily verify and communicate the fact there is a gender diverse team behind the creation and innovation of their product or service, allowing for a more authentic consumer and user connection to a brand.
That's why we created the SHEmakes mark.
