March is International Women’s Month. It’s a time to celebrate the many cultural, political and socioeconomic achievements women have made over the years.
We're proud to be a female founded brand! Here's what some of our team members had to say about what Women's Month means to them and why they celebrate the incredible women in their lives!
Graydon, Founder & CEO
"As a business person and a woman, I am so grateful to be in a position to empower my female forward team. We work collaboratively with passion and dedication to make beauty better in order to give our customers good skin days, every day."
Ange, Sales Strategy + Brand Expert
"Malala Yousafzai said, 'We cannot all succeed if half of us are held back.' As a professional woman, often working in industries that historically excluded women, I'm committed to gender equality for all. We can get there, in a generation. And as a mother of a young daughter, I believe we have to. Economists estimate it will take 200 years to achieve financial equality between the sexes—two centuries! We have what it takes to close those gaps in my daughter's lifetime, and I won't stop trying until we do."
Angelique, Sales + Operations Coordinator
"It’s truly wonderful that a day exists to celebrate the many achievements of women. Working for Graydon means being recognized for the work I do and being given equal opportunity. I work with so many intelligent, hard-working and kind women who I’ve not only enjoyed getting to know, but have also learned a lot from."
Emma, Marketing Lead
"I appreciate that Women's Month is a time to pause and reflect on the human rights and opportunities for women all around the world. It’s a time to celebrate the solidarity of women as we work together towards a more peaceful and humane co-existence. I feel very blessed to work alongside the intelligent and amazing women here at Graydon Skincare.”
Fatima, Customer Experience
"Michelle Obama said, ‘There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.’ This quote perfectly describes what Women's Month means to me. It is a great way to celebrate a diversity of women's achievements while inspiring us to believe in ourselves and have the confidence to go after what we want!”
Ivy, Lead Chemist + Product Development Manager
"Happy Women's Month to all the amazing, courageous and creative women and girls out there of all shapes, sizes, colour and identity that have the courage and perseverance to go after their dreams, whether big or small.
I am also happy/thankful to be working with a company that emphasizes gender equality and women empowerment. There is nothing we can't accomplish and no distance we can't reach"
Shay, Community Coordinator
“Happy International Women’s Month! This month allows me to reflect on how lucky I am to be surrounded by woman who inspire me to not only grow within my role but also as a person. Being a part of the Graydon Skincare team, a female owned company, is empowering, and a constant reminder that amazing things happen when women support and uplift each other."
Natalie, Digital Marketing Lead
"This Women's Month, I acknowledge that I am in a position where I work for a successful woman owned business with a woman dominated team, and in some places this isn't yet possible for women. I am lucky to work alongside people who believe in equality for all, with the opportunity to learn from a woman who I admire and am inspired by."
Pedro, Creative Director
"For as long as I can remember, I’ve always loved seeing women succeed and push through in a male dominant society. Since childhood, being raised by my grandmother, my role model for women was one of independence, of strength and of wisdom.
I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of a team led by a strong, independent woman who most definitely is here to succeed and is transforming skincare towards our shared goal of a sustainable future. Graydon is joined by our predominantly female team who are further demonstrations of female success and potential. Celebrating Women’s Month!"
