“Since day one, FIGS has been on a mission to improve the lives of healthcare workers globally,” said Trina Spear, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. “With every year that passes, our commitment to making tangible change deepens. 2023 was an incredible year during which many ideas, years in the making, came to fruition. From opening our Operating Theatre in Kenya to our progress on Advocacy, 2023 was a year in which we saw the impact that hard work can yield — and we can’t wait for more. Creating impact for our Awesome Humans, along with all of our stakeholders, is why we started FIGS and it’s what still drives us today.”
