International women’s day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and raises awareness of the importance of gender equality in the world, not just the workplace.
60% of Seedlip Co employees are women and we inspire, challenge and support each other every day. Of course, there is so much more to this amazing group of women than being a part of the Seedlip family. To celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked a few of our employees around the globe to tell us what inspires them and what they love to do outside of work.
