This International Women's Day theme is Break the Bias which speaks to creating a world free from bias, inequality, stereotypes and discrimination.
It’s really no secret women to this day still experience inequality in the workplace. This year I’ve chosen to celebrate and acknowledge women who inspire me in business. From their creativity, leadership, to their intelligence and everything in between.
If you’d like to join me, try being extra mindful to support women in business whether it’s engaging on their socials, promoting their pages or even treating yourself to a purchase. The idea is that we’re all responsible, individually, to our own thoughts and actions.
Claire Dunne - Founder of Graziher
I'm so inspired by Claire Dunne and her motivation to use her story telling talents to break the stereotypes of women living out in outback and rural Australia. Claire is a young woman from Queensland who independently publishes a beautifully put together quarterly magazine of women, sharing their stories. I encourage you to pick up a copy of her next magazine, it's a great read.

Abigail Forsyth - Founder and Managing Director of Keep Cup
I use my Keep Cup probably every day, it's something I take with me everywhere I go. Keep Cup is more than just a product, it's a whole movement. Abigail started the idea with her sibling from their Melbourne Café, on the simple idea of keeping your coffee cup and using it again. And there was clearly a need for it with Keep Cup becoming wildly successful and a household name, plus tackling a huge issue with single use plastic consumption. *Links above have no affiliation
