As women around the world continue to be disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Vionic Shoes—from our home base in San Rafael, California—is pleased to align with local chapters of Dress for Success® San Francisco/San Jose in inspiring hope and resilience in women through its “Your Hour, Her Power” campaign. We are also thrilled that this invaluable non-profit is also recognizing our own Angela Caltagirone, as a member of Bay Area Women in Power, for her outstanding leadership and advocacy of initiatives that help women thrive professionally and personally.
Vionic is fortunate to have the guidance of Angela in her role as Senior Vice President and General Manager. With a career devoted to developing some of retail’s biggest brands, she’s been instrumental in helping build Vionic into what it is today with visionary goals for the future. Part of Angela’s considerable expertise includes her dedication to mentoring a strong leadership environment in which women are front and center.
This leadership has shone during the challenging business climate of the past two years, guiding a nimble approach to all aspects of our Vionic operation. From embracing the corporate shift to a remote workforce, navigating global supply-chain issues, driving revenue through economic upheaval, etc., Angela and the larger leadership team have worked to ensure Vionic’s continuing success while maintaining the health and safety of all employees. In step with the societal landscape, she has upheld diversity, equity and inclusion as cornerstones of our brand’s wellness-driven DNA. And, when it could have been a time to pull back from philanthropy, Angela has not lost focus on it being a key Vionic priority.
Our company and Dress for Success have enjoyed a long relationship that’s included event sponsorship, financial contributions and donations of Vionic shoes to help empower women in either entering or returning to the workplace. The mission of Dress for Success is to assist women in finding their way to contribute to the world economy by providing much needed support, due to a variety of situations, that have impeded their confidence and independence.
For all these things (and more!), we celebrate Angela for her recognition in the “Your Hour, Her Power” campaign by Dress for Success. Congratulations!
