Happy International Women’s Day 2021

This week, to mark International Women’s Day, we will dedicate all editions of the Walpole Daily Luxury Digest to the inspiring female founders within the Walpole membership.

Sign up for the Digest by clicking here.

Tuesday sees us take a look at some of the fearless women behind our Brands of Tomorrow who are securing the future growth of the sector, and on Wednesday we will meet some of the craftswomen whose time-honoured skills, knowledge and expertise are at the heart of all luxury goods.

On Thursday we will profile those dedicated women working to make the UK’s traditionally ‘female dominated’ wedding and events sector a multi-million pound success story (despite punishing lockdowns). And on Friday we will hone in on Walpole’s Women in Luxury programme, with interviews with our latest speakers and partners.

But before all of that, click the links below for an opinion piece on Female Leadership courtesy of Jayne Alexander, founder of Dovetail; an interview with luxury jeweller Jessica McCormack; and RSVP now for Thursday’s IWD special webinar with Walpole’s Helen Brocklebank; luxury marketing and comms specialist Jo Glynn-Smith; and a panel of British luxury’s fascinating female founders: Joanna Dai, founder and CEO of Dai; Carol Lovell, founder and CEO of STOW; Frieda Gormley, co-founder of House of Hackney; and Harriet Hastings, founder of Biscuiteers.

If you would like to contribute your thoughts or opinions at any time, please contact Jenni Rayner on jenni.rayner@thewalpole.co.uk.
