International Women's Day 2023

8 Mar 2023
Celebrating International Women's Day 2023

We celebrated International Women's Day (IWD) with a wonderful team of women who all share many commonalities but one definite one-the love of the humble duckweed plant!! 

The theme of this years IWD was #EmbraceEquity. The campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren't enough

We spoke about this theme and came across a very apt quote by american author, Jody Picoult, that we wanted to share: 

'Equality is treating everyone the same. But equity is taking differences into account so everyone has a chance to succeed'
