International Womens Day

International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day 2024 



International Women’s Day is a significant occasion that allows us to reflect on the achievements of women and the ongoing struggle for gender equality. It serves as a reminder of the progress made and the work that still needs to be done to create a more inclusive society. 

At NSHB, we are incredibly proud of our female led School. Sam, our Principal and owner is a big part of the company and a big believer in dreaming big and chasing your potential! 

Having started the school in 2008, it has grown no end since then with the team and courses on offer increasing every year. Within the team we are predominantly female; including our office team, Megan, Mary and Mollie, as well as our hair and barbering team; Sarah, Sarah and Ellie, our beauty team; Jan, Linda and Emma and our holistic tutor, Rosie.

This year the theme for the day is ‘Inspire Inclusion’. As stated by the official website for IWD,

When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world. Women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.


Inspire Inclusion (find out more by clicking the inspire inclusion for the IWD website) encourages everyone to recognize the impact that women have in the world through all aspects of life no matter their situation. 

The theme is being posted worldwide using this hand symbol ,which resembles the shape of a heart, to represent the movement. We would love to see your posts sharing the symbol by tagging @beautyschoolnorwich and making sure to use the hashtag #inspireinclusion on your posts and stories.


Key Messages and Aims 

The key messages and aims of IWD to keep in mind and implement throughout your careers, hobbies and everyday lives! 

  • Justice 
  • Dignity 
  • Hope 
  • Equality 
  • Collaboration 
  • Tenacity 
  • Appreciation 
  • Respect 
  • Empathy 
  • Forgiveness 


Tenacity is the persistent determination displayed by someone who will not quit until they reach their goal. We love to implement this throughout our courses. It is so important to have this level of personal drive to maintain your work level throughout the course and even when things get challenging you ensure you reach that goal of becoming qualified. Whilst it is important that our students can work independently, their ability to collaborate in class and projects to help each other out is amazing to see. These are just a couple examples of these values which show in our everyday running’s at the school. 


And so join us on the journey of empowering women and let us celebrate the courage, resilience, and accomplishments of women while acknowledging the barriers some continue to face. Let us choose to challenge and actively work towards dismantling gender biases. 


Together, we can create a world where every woman has a voice and opportunity to thrive. Join the global conversation on International Women’s Day, and let us strive towards a future where gender equality is a reality for all.
