We LOVE the theme for International Women's Day 2022. And, of course we LOVE the colours that are widely associated with modern feminism - purples, whites and green.
Barbara Pollak, director of Pearsons School of Floristry and passionate flower lover shares her thoughts on International Women's Day. March 8th 2022.
You won’t be surprised to read that most people working in the Florist industry are women. And by far most students that have graced the doors of Pearsons are female - at least 95%!! And many small flower businesses, flowers shops and wedding floral studios have women owners. They are small, independent and contribute greatly to the flavour of the florist industry.
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key. Gender equality is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
A gender equal world can be healthier, wealthier and more harmonious - so what's not great about that? The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth ... so let's make it happen.
Collectively, we can make change happen. Collectively, we can each help to create a gender equal world.
