This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #EmbraceEquity. “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 #EmbraceEquity. The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. Read more about this here.” (from www.internationalwomensday.com)

Large corporations understand the value of ensuring that minority suppliers are given an equal chance as their peers, and create targets for supporting diverse companies such as Women-Owned businesses. These companies also know that customers’ core values play an essential role in their purchasing decisions and that increasingly savvy customers want to know that they are supporting ethical companies that support causes such as furthering gender parity. Buckland is proud to be Women-Owned and provide this distinct advantage to our customers as a diverse supplier.
Happy International Women’s Day!
