International Women’s Day

March 8, 2018

International Women’s Day

On this International Women’s Day, we’d like to take this opportunity to highlight the important contribution that women have made to the evolution and success of Groupe Dynamite. Whether it is in our stores, at Head Office or in the Distribution Centre, each woman that is part of our big family contributes to making a real difference! Here are some fun facts about the women who work at Groupe Dynamite:

Did you know that…

  • Women make up 79% of our Head Office employees, 53% of our Distribution Centre employees, and 99% of our in-store employees!
  • 50% of women at Groupe Dynamite’s Head Office hold a senior Management position!
  • 97% of our Management team is made up of women!

Our Marketing team spent some time with nine women whose leadership here at GDI really stands out. A “Born to Boss” video series that was launched via Instagram stories was posted to Dynamite’s official Instagram account (@dynamiteclothing) that has more than 205,000 followers in order to let the world discover some of our boss ladies through some Q&A.

Check out the “Born to Boss” video series here!:

In this video : Andrea Lombardi (Designer), Katia Berlin (Director, Continuous Improvement), Tracy McElligott (Senior Manager, Visual), Crystal Walton (Senior Manager, Marketing), Rachael Elizabeth Hodgson (Divisional Design Director), Ry Pak (Manager Communications and Events), Sarah-Eve Lessard (Junior Designer), Valerie Bédard (Divisional Merchandise Director, Dynamite) and Christina Vongas (VP, Dynamite Merchandising).

Happy International Women’s Day to all of our employees and to every woman in the world!
