Today, DoorDash made a huge announcement. The nation-wide delivery app is creating a new application called ”Made by Women"; a digital platform, that aims to champion women-owned businesses and provide women’s voices with a lift. This announcement comes along with a first-of-its-kind partnership with ESPN commentator and two-time WNBA All-Star for the Los Angeles Sparks, Chiney Ogwumike.
"I’m thrilled to partner with DoorDash to celebrate and empower women everywhere. As a woman trying to balance it all, it is critical to show the world that we will continue to break glass ceilings every day and lift each other up,” said Ogwumike. Door Dash's Director of Partnership Marketing also added, “We’re constantly inspired by the endless ways women continue to break barriers and create change across food, sports, entrepreneurship, and beyond. We are proud to launch our Made by Women platform and partner with Chiney Ogwumike, a multi-faceted trailblazer who is forging a path of her own while also uplifting others along the way."
To solidify Doordash’s commitment to women-owned businesses even further, a brand new national ad campaign titled “In the Zone” will star Ogwumike. The commercial will run over TV, digital, and social media. The campaign is one of the very few non-endemic brands to feature a solo WNBA athlete in national creative, paving the way for women in sports to receive the recognition they deserve.
