The month of March is designated as Women’s History Month with March 8th marking International Women’s Day, a day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. We wanted to show you what that looks like at We Olive, with many of our locations being women-owned and women-managed and with our corporate team being led by women. We’re proud to introduce you to the Women of We Olive!

Impressive group of women. Their passion is obvious. Thanks for sharing the celebration.
I LOVE We Olive and so MANY of their products…..and yes, I do adventure out and indulge and bring home some of the other outstanding lines you carry! I can’t say enough about the fantastic staff at the PASO ROBLES “We Olive” retail store. Especially Denise….along with her crew — every time I go into the store, I’m so comfortable and feel so welcomed. And, I’m a bit inquisitive and they’re always so willing to answer any questions. LOVE THIS TEAM!
