This year’s campaign theme is Break the Bias

Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can break the bias in our communities. We can break the bias in our workplaces. We can break the bias in our schools, colleges and universities. Together, we can all break the bias - on International Women's Day (IWD) and beyond.

As part of International Women's Day this year, we asked staff members at Peter Sheppard Footwear to share the advice they'd give their 15 year old self. We hope it's advice that speaks to you, your daughter or your daughter's daughter.

TERESA MARR | Assistant Store Manager

Life is full of surprises. Some of those surprises are good and some surprises are bad. But that is all part of the adventure.

ELOISE PIERCE | Marketing Manager

Never take family for granted and spend time with the ones you love while you can. You never know what's around the corner and how quickly people can be gone. 

CATHERINE LEON | Art Director/Senior Designer

Be brave. Be bold. Be confident. It might be daunting at first, but push forward no matter what anyone says. Continue to believe in your dreams, and never doubt your ability, as you have full control of your capacity. Keep applying yourself with confidence and own your strengths!

SIMONE KROSS | Store Manager

Trust yourself. Have faith in your abilities, you are capable of so much more than you think. Trust your gut instincts and listen to your inner voice - you will almost always be right.

CHARLOTTE CHING | Merchandise Planner

Take all the opportunities you can, explore the world, and don’t be scared of failure. Find and surround yourself with people that have the same values as you and celebrate your growth

CANDICE KIELY | Sales Associate

No matter what anyone says, you don't ever have to be anything other than 100% you. No matter the circumstances, always be you.

STEPHANIE GREENE | eCommerce Manager

Confidence will win over beauty, anyday. Choose your friends wisely, treat others the way you want to be treated, & take the losses with the wins.
