Zulily is delighted to be a sponsor of this year's Virtual Grace Hopper Celebration, which recognizes incredible women transforming technology around our world.
As we shared a virtual moment of silence yesterday in observance and unity, today we continue our dialogue.
As a retailer that interacts daily with millions of customers worldwide and as an employer of 25,000 team members, we recognize our responsibility to be a voice for change in the face of racism and injustice. Today, the nation grieves as we process the senseless death of a black man, George Floyd, and rising unrest across our country. As a company, we must rededicate ourselves to creating a community where each of us feels able to be our full selves, valued for who we are, valued for the experiences that shaped us. Let us have the courage today to have the uncomfortable conversations – sharing stories that recognize our past, celebrate our uniqueness, acknowledge our fears, and strengthen the bonds that unite us. "Together we stand with our black colleagues, customers, vendors, and community members on a path forward as we stand up in the face of racism and discrimination and strive to help create a more open and inclusive global community.” Mike George, President and CEO, Qurate Retail Inc.

Zulily's Ohio office was proud to host an employee holiday photo event on Saturday, benefiting a local charity. NC4K serves pediatric cancer families living in or being treated in Ohio, and every Zulily employee who participated in this event also raised money to benefit NC4K. We'd like to give a big thank you to our Ohio teams, and wish our extended Zulily family a wonderful holiday season.
