March 8 is celebrated as International Women’s Day around the world. We are joining this year’s global conversation in pushing for a gender equal world. #EachForEqual
An equal world is an enabled world.
#EachforEqual is about challenging stereotypes, fighting bias, broadening perceptions, improving situations and celebrating women’s achievements. Together, we can help to create a gender equal world.
We’re partnering with some of the most powerful brands we know to share this message. We can all be #EachforEqual and here are some ways they are spreading this message to the world.
I praise women for their unique gifts and give them a platform to utilize their unique gifts, through my business and through my work as an artist. I think naturally, feminine (outside of gender) qualities are heavily underappreciated, and these are qualities I work to strengthen within myself and within those around me. I’ve naturally hired all women at FLEURS and we also all happen to be artists – it’s small but it counts!

We’re doing our best to make a difference here in Vancouver. We are a female-founded business with a team of 7 female makers. We design and create products for hardworking women who are making real differences in their communities. We’re also committed to giving back to women-centric initiatives and non-profit organizations, specifically through a program at UGM called The Sanctuary, which helps mothers and children living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. We’re excited to be partnering with One Girl Can this IWD!
