Award-winning pleasure product manufacturer Rock Candy Toys has announced its 3rd annual Ladies of the Industry celebration, which will honor a new roundup of female-identifying industry leaders during Women’s History Month.
Each lady of the industry will be featured in a series of tribute posts on Rock Candy’s social media channels every week beginning March 1, and will conclude on March 31. Tomorrow’s tribute will spotlight Lea Rich, the General Buyer for Deja Vu Love Boutique in El Cajon, California.
2023 honorees include consummate professionals throughout adult retail, business consulting, digital media, and sexual health education.
“This industry is stacked with brilliant and kind women who are constantly raising the bar in terms of work ethic and innovation,” said Tracy Leone, Rock Candy Toys Sales Director and award winner of XBIZ’ 2023 Community Figure of the Year.
She enthused, “Women’s History Month is an ongoing opportunity for us to pay homage to the women who are paving the way for future generations of adult industry professionals, while creating a positive impact within our community, and beyond.”
Rock Candy Toys declared the inaugural Ladies of the Industry event in March 2021, and it has taken place alongside Women’s History Month every year since.
Former honorees have spanned adult film, distribution, media publishing, and retail, including adult film director Jacky St. James, industry veteran Kim Airs, East Coast News VP Lynda Mort, Sheila Hostler of Sactacular Holdings LLC, and Shelanda Brown Jones of Adam & Eve, to name a few.
Leone added, “it is our pleasure to recognize this year’s diverse lineup of empowering women who inspire their peers just by being their true, authentic selves. Learn more about why we admire the special honorees of 2023 through Rock Candy’s social media tribute posts, to be published every week in March.”
In addition to a dedicated tribute on Rock Candy’s social media channels, each honoree will receive a gift on behalf of the Rock Candy team as a token of appreciation.
