Inspiring Inclusion on International Women’s Day with Women-made Gifts.

Inspiring Inclusion on International Women’s Day with Women-made Gifts.

The most wonderful time of the year is only 2 weeks away… International Women’s Day is on March 8th! We are working with clients to help make their recognition celebrations extra special with gifts of appreciation for their woman-identifying team members. 

It is a time to celebrate the achievements of women worldwide. It's a day to recognize the progress made towards gender equality and to acknowledge the work that still needs to be done. 

This year’s theme is “Inspire Inclusion” which encourages all of us to inspire others to understand the value women bring when they take a seat at the table, so that together, we can forge a better world. We couldn’t agree more, and would like to help you make your team’s recognition of this important day as impactful as possible. Learn more about the 2024 IWD #inspireinclusion campaign here.

At Conscious Collective, being a woman-owned business ourselves, we celebrate and support other women-led businesses every day, but are so excited to highlight some of our favourite ethical and sustainable vendors whose products make perfect appreciation gifts for International Women's Day.
