Celebrating Women…

7th March 2022

“A strong woman doesn’t let failure or rejection upset her. She cherishes appreciation and criticism equally. Her unconditional love for herself makes her confident and attractive. The way other people perceive or judge her is none of her business.”

Happy International Women’s Day 2022! The theme for IWD 2022 this year is #BreakTheBias, but what does this really mean? Whether it be deliberate or unintentional, bias can make it difficult for women to feel their 100% authentic self sometimes. Women & Men go through their own battles throughout their careers; so to us, IWD 2022 isn’t about viewing either gender ahead of the other, it’s about addressing the unconscious bias that has existed over generations, take action, level the playing field, and empower Women.

In previous years, the South Asian Wedding Industry may have been more male dominated, but more recently, not only have we seen an increase in female-owned businesses, we have seen a shift in mentality. Let’s face it, our industry has Queen Bee’s who are confident, innovative, creative, outgoing, talented, and they are breaking the bias day-by-day.

“Empowered women, empower women

Women, in every workplace and every environment, will face tough days at times, but that workplace and environment needs to be supportive provide a good foundation for Women to thrive off of. It’s incredible to see that our industry creates awareness, supports #IWD2022, and works to create a more empowering environment everyday.

Did you know? 59% of our Eternity UK featured suppliers are female-owned businesses.
