Change is the only constant, but support should
be a constant just the same. Support can come in various forms and be needed in different ways. It can appear as encouragement for a sister or a friend. It can manifest as
opportunities for colleagues or newcomers. It can reveal itself as standing up for the women in the back, or the girls to come. Whichever it is, that very support can kickstart a change and create a snowball effect.
the theme 'Embrace Equity' for this year's International Women's Day brings a number of valid questions to the table. Equality means every woman gets the same set of tools. Equity means giving the right tools based on their
needs so that everyone is on equal footing for success. Of course, nothing comes easy.
In light of International Women's Day, we partnered with Wanderlust + Co to bring together 15 women of influence from various fields
in the local scene for an intimate brunch and sharing session
at the Orchid Conservatory of The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Autograph Collection. For these women who started their paths earlier (and some more recent than most), the early days were full of challenges but even in a current
era perceived as 'a success', there are still bad days and problems to be solved. But through each vulnerable share, every woman offered empathy, acknowledgement and support.
Here are some of the empowering quotes they've
left us with on our fun question cards and we hope they'll inspire you this International Women's Day, and every day. When we support one another, change is the only constant we need not fear.
