Happy Women’s History Month! And thank you for following our quarterly updates. There’s so much we want to share with you, starting with a new, empowering collection we launched on International Women’s Day.
New Women’s Empowerment Collection
As a female-led team, we celebrate women every day at EC. In honor of Women’s History Month, we wanted to create a new line of beautiful, powerful organizational essentials designed by women for women and girls.
We’ve also added new, empowering school supplies and organizing tools for kids, featuring iconic heroines like Princess Leia™ from Star Wars across journals, stickers, and more.
New to Our EttaVee Collection
We just love collaborating with Jessi Raulet, the American-born artist behind the vibrant France-based lifestyle brand EttaVee. That’s why we’ve expanded our EttaVee X Erin Condren collection to bring you new planners, stationery, and accessories featuring her bright, bold hand-painted designs bursting with color and pure joy.
Shop the full collection at erincondren.com/ettavee.
Giving back has been central to our brand since its inception. We have a long history of giving back to support education and teachers, breast cancer awareness, and upcoming artists from all backgrounds. To date, EC has given back over $1M (and we’re not done yet)!
Erin Condren GO Wild Entrepreneur Grant
We are endlessly inspired by our planner community and how they use our products to live more intentional lives through organization. We especially love seeing how so many use their planners to transform their dreams into goals and their goals into reality. That’s why we’re so proud of our first-ever small business grant offered at the 2022 GO Wild planner conference.
The grant consists of $4,500 – $3,000 for the first-prize winner and $1,500 for the second prize winner – and is intended to help empower entrepreneurs in this planning community and take their business to the next level. We had 19 beyond inspirational applicants, five of which became finalists (including one set of brilliant twins/partners) and presented their business ideas to our panel.

2022 Black History Month Collection
Our second annual Black History Month Collection, featuring incredibly beautiful designs by artists Michelle Robinson and Melissa Koby, gave back over $15K to the nonprofit Black Mamas Matter Alliance.
While Black History Month and the donation period have ended, this inspiring collection is still available and continues to support the featured artists for a full year.
We just have to call out this E! Online feature of Michelle Robinson’s Metallic Sweet Surrender design on our LifePlanner™ – we love it!
You can shop the full collection at erincondren.com/featured-artists.
We’ve gotten great feedback from our team regarding our social justice education with Dr. Tee Williams. That’s why we’re continuing this company-wide training to give new hires and those who were unable to attend last year the same educational opportunity.
As Asian Pacific American Heritage Month approaches, our team is preparing a gorgeous, new giveback collection in collaboration with immensely talented AAPI artists. We’re also in full planner season prep mode and can’t wait to introduce you to our most robust LifePlanner™ collection yet, including designs from our 2022 featured artists collaborations. So, look out for that soon!
