International Women’s Day: 5 days of events to celebrate in Hong Kong

by Slowood MKT

 This International Women's Day, we're proud to support and celebrate the theme of "inspire inclusion." We really didn't want to simply 'run a promotion on womens products', so we've decided to help make a meaningful impact by using our platform to highlight and promote events in our city that empower and uplift women this IWD.

As a sustainable retail company, we believe in the power of community and collaboration. By sharing this round-up of local IWD events, we aim to amplify the voices of women leaders and organizations, and encourage our community to join in, learn and show support!

For us, "inspire inclusion" means creating a space where all voices are valued, where diversity is celebrated, and where women have equal opportunities to thrive. It means recognizing the strength and power that come from inclusivity and representation.

Join us in supporting these incredible events in our city, and let's inspire inclusion together:
