Pakistani social entrepreneur Shiza Shahid has collaborated with Selena Gomez for her cookware business “Our Place”.
Pakistani women are on a mission to raise the bar. Recently, a Pakistani-American social entrepreneur, Shiza Shahid’s company ‘Our Place’, owned and run by women, is partnering with the highly influential Hollywood singer and actress Selena Gomez.
Shahid co-founded ‘The Malala Fund” and then became the CEO of the non-profit organisation that promoted education for girls. She launched ‘Our Place’ a little over two years ago to inspire more people to reconnect with their heritage, food systems, and one another by cooking and sharing food. For her, partnering up with Selena Gomez is a dream come true.
Our Place is a cookware business based in Los Angeles that designs cookware and produces products sustainably. In 2020, it generated $20 million while being handled by 12 people.
Gomez is known for her work in mental health and her very funny journey to home cooking. The collaboration between her and ‘Our Place’ reflects what the company stands for.
This collaboration is part of a greater cause. 10% of profits from the collection will be donated to expand mental health services with Gomez’s makeup line ‘Rare Beauty’.
Gomez took it to her Instagram to announce the news. She wrote, “Finally can share my collection with Our Place!” The collection is a “celebration of all ways we cook- as beginners or experts, perfectly or imperfectly, messily and joyously. Our Place is immigrant and women-owned, rooted in building a bigger table.”
