WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – With more than 20 delicious flavors, the wide selection of Dannon’s Light + Fit® yogurt has long given women the variety of flavors they are looking for to help them find balance in their routine. Light + Fit is teaming up with Dress for Success Worldwide®, the only global nonprofit employment resource for women, to create new Lemon Cream and Orange Cream Greek Nonfat Yogurts that support and celebrate women’s economic empowerment.
Since February 2021, nearly 1 million women left the workforce due to a variety of reasons, from lack of paid family leave to limited childcare resources.* Light + Fit recognizes the need to support women in balancing career and family and aims to be part of the solution. As 2022 begins, Light + Fit is committed to supporting women throughout their life and work journey, starting with its inspired partnership with Dress for Success to raise awareness for these challenges. This includes the new Lemon Cream and Orange Cream yogurt packs, along with an additional $100,000 donation to Dress for Success to further the mission of the organization.
“Danone North America, Light + Fit and Dress for Success share a commitment to equity in the workplace and helping women in the U.S. thrive at work and in life,” said Surbhi Martin, Vice President of Greek Yogurt & Functional Nutrition, Danone North America. “Through our partnership, we are proud to support the work Dress for Success does to help women achieve economic independence.”
“At Dress for Success we have seen first-hand the impact that the pandemic has had on women balancing work and life,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “That’s why we are so proud to be working with a partner like Light + Fit that sees the need to support women holistically, in every aspect of their lives. We hope this partnership will help spread awareness for our mission and expand the number of women we are able to support through our services.”
Light + Fit worked with female illustrator Michelle Periera to create these beautiful designs for the new Lemon Cream and Orange Cream flavors as part of its partnership with Dress for Success. Her work elevates themes of inclusivity and female empowerment while using bold graphic textures, bright colors, and symbolism to create playful illustrations that evoke positive feelings.
“The past few years have been difficult for everyone because of COVID-19, so it was a pleasure to draw images that had a sense of optimism and positivity,” said Periera, “I wanted to show women working together as a team to get things done. When life gives you lemons you make lemonade, or in this case, Lemon Cream and Orange Cream Greek yogurt.”
New Light + Fit x Dress for Success Lemon Cream and Orange Cream Greek Nonfat Yogurts have 12 grams of protein, 7 grams of total sugar, 0 grams of fat, and are a good source of calcium.
