Bromborough fashion house celebrates International Women’s Day

As today marks International Women’s Day, Bromborough based global fashion house Oh Polly reinforced their ongoing support for women in the workplace.

The business was co-founded by a woman, Claire Henderson and today, in 2022, 69% of the brand’s senior leadership roles are held by women.

Driving progression within the company is very important and consequently the business has their own in-house Management Development programme. Due to this, they have seen an increase in the number of women in Senior Leadership roles rise by 19% over the past 12 months.

All of the brand’s colleagues have completed Equality, Diversity and Inclusion training and all of their managers received additional training, allowing them to become Level 2 certified in Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Natalie Hislop, Senior Graphic Designer at Oh Polly, said, “I’m really proud of having the confidence to step out of my comfort zone throughout my career, being able to advance from one department to another and proud of working with my colleagues to grow and develop the team we have today!”

Madi Campos, Production Manager at Oh Polly, said, “Throughout my journey of womanhood, I am most proud of becoming a mother, having the strength to run marathons and for landing my DREAM JOB at Oh Polly, which has given me the opportunity to work alongside some of the most creative, hardworking, and utmost talented woman in the industry.”

Rebecca Sharp, Operations Support Manager at Oh Polly, said, “My whole working life I have been surrounded by female leaders. It has shaped my perception of what is possible for me and my career. The more diverse the leadership, the better for everyone!”

Ishbel Al-Jorani, Junior Buyer at Oh Polly, said, “I am lucky to be surrounded by one of the most amazing teams I have ever worked in since starting in the industry. We all support each other, give daily pep talks and believe in each other!

“I am also really lucky that I am surrounded by strong women in my family so I have always had good role models of women being strong and have taught me how to be a strong woman and live my life by strong values of being honest, grateful and kind. My best advice to anyone is to know your values and stay true to them, this will help you to not give up and get disheartened when things aren’t easy!”
