As a company founded by a WOC, maude was created for all bodies, all genders, all races. That we can even exist is a testament to the shoulders we stand on—those of trailblazing individuals of diverse backgrounds who fought for healthy equity and equality in our industry and beyond. For them, we will always be inclusive, stand against racism, and tell the stories of the voices that brought us to where we are.
In honor of our AAPI brothers and sisters find out how you can support organizations fighting for much-needed change in the world. View all resources guides here.
