International Women’s Day 2022
“this is a day to remind us that with all we have done together, there’s still more to do. We must continue to acknowledge and honour the importance of the contributions of women so that young girls around the world see examples of role models that look like them so that they know there is hope, a path forward, and a trail blazed for them to step into their greatness.”
- Aleshia Duncan
Women need other women in their lives who think they are a big deal. No competition, no backhanded comments, no jealousy, no hate, just I love you, I support you and there is no one on earth like you.
And wow do we think our incredible restore grace women are a big deal, and we wanted to celebrate them this International Women’s Day. With a relaxing afternoon tea, and time out together, we chatted about about what International Women’s Day means to us.
We are so proud of what our team achieves every day. We don’t have entire departments just for HR or Marketing or a separate warehouse just for packing and shipping our orders. We are a small, regional-based, Australian business employing two local women, who stock our restore grace cushion covers, pot plant covers, outdoor cushions and floor cushions to over 50 other Australian small businesses just like us. Read our story.
We want our business to grow and we want our women to grow with it. We want to see our employees thrive and build their own teams and build a path for their department and shape its future. We want them to be a part of something bigger and put their strengths, creativity and individuality into restore grace. We want to be around women who talk about ideas, growth, vision and success.
Being the owners of our own small business means we are the role models and we are the women who bring the culture to our business. We are the ones that shape inclusivity, belonging and equality. It is our responsibility to ensure we have built a culture we are proud of.
Building a workplace where women can thrive and be proud of themselves and what they have achieved is what matters to us. A workplace where not only hard work is celebrated but where your attitude, contribution, ideas, and involvement in the business is also celebrated.
We are grateful. Whether you have 100 employees or 4, this is where foundations are built. One day we may have 100 staff and we want the same values to carry through the future of our business.
It is so important to do what we can for one another. It’s about supporting other women.
This is what success looks like. Something to be proud of. Women to be proud of.
