Mary Kay Ash: An Iconic Leader
Mary Kay Ash was ahead of her time, all the time. She changed the world of business by creating more opportunities for women, building a company guided by her values, and empowering women by putting them in control of their own futures.

Mary Kay Ash launched her business more than 50 years ago, but she continues to be a source of inspiration to millions today. Her values live on in the company she built, and her mission of empowering women is as important now as it has ever been. Mary Kay Ash’s lifetime of achievements made her a trailblazing entrepreneur, and her lasting legacy has made her an icon.
