March 8, 2017 is International Women’s Day and the theme is #BeBoldForChange. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Buckland is proud to celebrate International Women’s Day as a registered Women-Owned business. With certifications from WEConnect International and WBE Canada, Buckland is part of a “global network that connects Women-Owned businesses to qualified buyers around the world and helps them succeed in global value chains.” (WeConnect International)
Large corporations understand the value in 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 important role in their purchasing decisions and that increasingly savvy customers want to know that they are supporting ethical companies who 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.
