Highlights

Shutterfly Employees Share the Importance of Juneteenth

Kevin Davis, President of ShutterColors Employee Resource Group

The importance of Juneteenth dives deep into our Nation’s History of freedom for those that were captured in bondage dating back to the early 1500s. Officially, American History states the commercialization of Slavery started with the arrival of captives from Africa to the James Colony, in 1619. Africans were captured into slavery, born into slavery, and died as slaves. Freedom Day is for all those souls that were never able to live out the American Dream and the words of the great speech, “I Have a Dream”, by Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, “Free at Last, Free at Last, Thank God Almighty I’m Free at Last”. To many African Americans that were descendants of slaves, Juneteenth is their Independence Day. I like to think that it represents the Second Independence Day in America, freeing all Americans of the dark horrible atrocity, called Slavery.

Reflecting on the last decade, we still have so far to go to improve racial equality. Although we have opportunities, we should celebrate the advancements of African Americans and those that stood by, fought for, suffered with, cried with, and made change with… We together continue this effort to uplift and support our cause so that everyone be judged by their character not their race, ethnicity, disability, gender, sexual orientation, identity, or color of skin.

Felicia Johnson, DEI Project Manager

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. It is important to me because it serves as a critical reminder of what my ancestors endured, as well as a beacon for what is possible.

I strongly believe all Americans should recognize the end of slavery (Juneteenth) as a national holiday. Some might argue that July 4th (Independence Day) marked white American’s freedom from British rule, and thus Juneteenth marks black American’s freedom from the bondages of slavery. It’s important to recognize that the blanket of freedom should be felt by ALL, and that acknowledgement of key dates supporting freedom should be recognized by ALL as well.

Shutterfly was recently named one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity of 2022 by Forbes Magazine.  This honor arrives two months after being named one of America’s Best Employers of 2022 by Forbes magazine. 

 “I am so proud to have our progress in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion recognized by Forbes,” said Hilary Schneider, President and CEO of Shutterfly.  “At Shutterfly, we know that different lived experiences, different perspectives, and the safety to bring your whole self to work not only creates a better environment but also drives better results.  I am honored to be on this long-term journey with a team that is committed to taking intentional action against these values.”

Message from Hilary Schneider in Celebration of International Women's Day

When I attended Harvard Business School back in the mid-80s, there were only 20% women in my class. I often heard my male classmates proclaim not only their desire, but their expectation to become a VP or a CEO within two years of graduating from the program. At that time, I often thought to myself – I would just be happy with a job offer. Little did I know that I would go on to serve in multiple influential leadership roles, and eventually run a multi-billion dollar company. I wish I could go back to my younger self and help instill more confidence and optimism for the future for myself and women in the workplace as a whole.

As many of you may know, March is Women’s History Month—a celebration of women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. It has been observed in the U.S. annually since 1987, and as part of this month-long celebration, March 8th is recognized globally as International Women’s Day (IWD).

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is “break the bias” which is something that really resonates with me since the majority of my professional career has been navigating male-dominated industries. I try to always remember what it has felt like to be different and to fight through adversity because it’s made me who I am today, and it also embodies how many people currently feel striving for success in their jobs or within their communities.

Shutterfly has a unique perspective on gender parity. This is not only because I’m a female CEO and the culture I’ve cultivated with my leaders, but also because most of our customers and employees throughout our family of brands are predominantly female. As a company we continue to invest in all aspects of diversity, equity, and inclusion by taking steps to ensure that women are well represented as leaders, managers, designers and throughout our supply chain.

Soon after joining Shutterfly, I adjusted the board of directors to be more diverse. The Shutterfly board is now 36% female (5 of 14), and three of the five women are non-white. And last year, we changed our HR benefits to be more inclusive by expanding maternity leave to include parental leave, adoption assistance, and surrogacy.

In addition, we have an active and long-standing employee Women in Leadership ShuttERGroup established to help create an inclusive and safe community through connection, mentorship, allyship, collaboration, and discussion that empowers women to learn, network, increase their visibility, and build leadership skills.

I sincerely believe everyone has a role to play in forging a more gender-balanced world. I’m excited to acknowledge and celebrate all of the amazing accomplishments of women at our company and in our customers’ lives. Join me here and on LinkedIn as we share those stories this month, and throughout the year. Happy International Women’s Day!

We are not just a company – we are a creative community of real people who care deeply about the safety and security of everyone in the Shutterfly and Spoonflower families. Here are three ways we hope to make a difference:  

Spoonflower and Shutterfly have curated 110 designs by some of our amazing Ukrainian artists. You can support these artists (like @ ilonitta_patterns, who designed the beautiful print on this post) by purchasing their designs on Spoonflower wallpaper, home decor and fabric. 

Additionally, the Shutterfly Foundation will be making a $50,000 donation to CARE Ukraine in order to help support the tremendous need for basic supplies during this humanitarian crisis. 

Finally, we are offering all Spoonflower artists who are verified sellers residing in Ukraine the opportunity to bypass the proofing process during this time. If you are an artist based in Ukraine, please reach out to help@spoonflower.com for more information about this program.
