JD Sports Partners With PUMA for a Month Long Celebration for International Women’s Day
Spotlighting five female entrepreneurs who are paving the future forward.
In honor of International Women’s Day, JD Sports is partnering with PUMA for a month-long celebration dedicated to women. Officially kicking off on March 8, the brand will be commemorating the occasion with a Community Voices episode which will feature a panel of boundary-breaking females who will share their unique backstories as leaders in their field, hurdles they’ve overcome in order to succeed in male-dominated industries and will offer insight on what IWD means to them.
Through JD Sports’ loyalty program, STATUS, the brand will be giving away a selection of curated items from each of the female panelists’ businesses. Prize packs featuring an array of items from the female entrepreneurs will also be given as a gift with purchase for a select number of customers who purchase the exclusive PUMA IWD footwear (limited quantities available). To celebrate Women’s History Month, the brand will be enlisting Meena Harris to offer her knowledge and business acumen in the form of a special episode that will air on March 19. An exclusive giveaway will also take place and will include PUMA IWD footwear and one of Meena’s “Phenomenal” T-shirts
