Carinne along with her mother, Francine Chambers are pioneers, creating an entirely new category in the feminine hygiene industry and have been titled as industry disruptors. Diva International has achieved five-year revenue-growth of 712%, making them a company to follow. Diva is proud to be a part of PERIOD’s Menstrual Movement and to be the first company to provide PERIOD with this uniquely monumental level of sponsorship.
The conference is an opportunity for each PERIOD Chapter Leader to learn how they can further the Menstrual Movement in their own communities. Carinne is grateful to be a part of this important cause. Given Carinne’s vast experience in the feminine hygiene industry, drawing attention to the globally-prevalent topic of menstruation is at the forefront of what Carinne instills into The DivaCup brand as a whole.
“It feels like a dream to work with The DivaCup in this capacity,” says PERIOD Founder and Executive Director, Nadya Okamoto. “I, personally, have used The DivaCup since my second menstrual cycle when I was fourteen years old, and dreamed of partnering with The DivaCup, the category pioneer. It’s quite a statement for such a company to so heavily be investing in both the leadership potential in the next generation, and the Menstrual Movement overall.”
PERIOD Con is based around the three pillars of PERIOD’s mission, which are Service, Education and Advocacy. Diva’s mission is to provide solutions for excellence in menstrual care, environment care, production and sustainability. The opportunity to align these goals with PERIOD’s mission is a privilege in of itself. PERIOD and Diva have the same foundation, which is to provide a better period experience to menstruators around the world.
