This year, Women’s Day was themed “Think equal, build smart, innovation for change”.
It is no coincidence that we are seeing more women making waves within business, politics, environmentalism and sustainability globally. A few shining examples include Swedish Climate Activist Greta Thunberg, Executive Director of 350.org May Boeve, Democratic Party Politician, Nancy Pelosi and New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern.
Of course, the women in Hong Kong are no exception to this such as; Redress founder, Christina Dean, The R Collective Creative Director Denise Ho, Philanthropist, mother of 3 and businesswomen, Jo Soo Tang, and Hong Kong Chef, Peggy Chan from Grass Roots Pantry to name just a few.
Together with our Founder Jeanine Hsu (a pioneer in the eco-design world of HK, Winner of the Women of Hope Eco Warrior Award '18) niin would like to celebrate all women making an impact in society.
This month alone, we have been proudly involved with the following events that promote women empowerment:
ALLBRIGHT Event and Workshop – 11th-13th November
We were invited to a series of inspirational events held in town by ALLBRIGHT, a network and community founded in fact by an old friend of Jeanine Hsu's from London, Anna Jones and co-founder Debbie Wosskow who also came to speak at The Upper House. ALLBRIGHT celebrates and connects smart–thinking women through members’ clubs and a digital education platform. #Sisterhoodworks is their motto, and we couldn't agree more!
