THE QUEST FOR WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT
At Slipssy, our mission is to improve social equity for all women worldwide with the sale of our products.
Still today, we have a long way to go to improve women’s equality worldwide. There continues to be a discrepancy in terms of equal power and opportunities for financial freedom, education, personal development and more. To combat these discrepancies, we believe in our responsibility to do our part to make a positive impact for generations to come.
Slipssy is dedicated to supporting small charities that have a real impact in their communities by empowering women in education and healthcare to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
We are actively involved with the Foundation Angeles de Medellin, where our CEO, Jean-Francois Asselin is associated with Mark Kaseman since 2018.
