Happy International Women’s Day 2018

I believe in women and want to arm them with a strong personal image and a recognizable personal brand that will give them more visibility and  better opportunities.

A big part of my job is to help building confidence, saying you can do it and allowing people to see themselves as a capable and talented professional and not just someone who happened to pass by at the right moment.

The right personal style comes only after a strong self-image has been defined and implemented.

Education, motivation and confidence are huge factors but what else can be done to gain gender equality? I went to study some data. World Economic Forum’s  Global Gender Gap Report measures gender equality by bench marking 144 countries regarding their progress on gender parity. It concentrates on four main themes: Economic Participation and Opportunity, Educational Attainment, Health and Survival, and Political Empowerment.

In addition the 2017 edition shows also “data around the dynamics of gender gaps across industry talent pools and occupations“. I found this part particularly interesting and hope that will be included in the future. However reading the report didn’t make me particularly happy because despite the small victories the overall findings were disappointing.

Despite the efforts to close the gender gap for good, I read that the gap is actually widening and that the progress is going backwards. It was estimated that with the current rate of progress it will take 170 years to close the gap but the 2017 report from November 2017 found that it will take 217 years to close the gap.

It means that the current measures taken are not strong enough and a lot of work still needs to be done. Women are still missing out on opportunities and overlooked during promotion discussions. To me it feels like waste of valuable resources and talent.

The findings tell that the key to closing the gender gap in the workforce is to hire more women. When women participate and go after leadership roles in the workforce all women profit: More women are then hired at all levels throughout the organizations and fields of speciality. That is why it is important to support a steady increase of the proportion of women in leadership.

Is your organization doing enough on this front? Are you doing enough to promote women? What else could you or your organization do to put more women in leadership positions and accelerate positive change?

I am a one woman shop but in my work I see a lot of women. They come in many shapes, sizes, nationalities. They are unique, talented, ambitious, self-aware, curious. On March 8th the world is celebrating International Women’s Day and I am joining in celebrating all the women in the world, but there is a special place in my heart reserved for my wonderful female clients.

Here at I on Image I am celebrating milestones both big and small. I love when my clients are reaching the stars and living their dreams.

This year’s International Women’s Day’s theme is Press for Progress and encouraged by the inspiring theme I wanted to take a pledge to live by. Mine is closely related to my work and resonates strongly with my business values:

“I will forge positive visibility of women”

– International Women’s Day pledges 2018

 

#IWD2018 #pressforprogress

 

I made that card on International Women’s Day’s website. Join the movement and make your own here. Take a pledge and share it with me. I would love to see the variety and how everyone’s pledges tie to their values and their work. You can mail me at ionimage@gmail.com or tag me in social media.

Happy International Women’s Day 2018!

Let’s make together a positive difference for women!

Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year from I on Image 2018

Style is a powerful, yet often overlooked, tool for making positive first impressions on- and offline. Your personal image is one of the few aspects of your life that you have a full control of and I am delighted to help you to invest in yourself in 2018.

A well planned wardrobe brings you clarity and confidence, and it helps you to concentrate on things that are important to you by minimizing the amount of decisions you need to take on a daily basic.  I help you discover and unleash your own unique style that is remembered for the right reasons.

For me it has never really been about individual trends that change every season but about building a sustainable individual style that tells your story. I truly believe that everyone deserves to be the I on their personal image!

Are you after your dream job? Or did you quit so you could open a whole new page in your career? Did you get a promotion or are you working toward getting one real soon? Are you going back to work after a sabbatical or maternity leave?

Perhaps you have started your own business? Could you profit from increased confidence when attending networking or company events? Do you feel that in general your style could reflect better your professional qualities?

This year it’s time to invest in yourself and claim the ownership of your image. Put your best foot forward in 2018 and book your appointment today!

Here’s to an amazing 2018!

I am wishing you a very happy New Year 2017!

My biggest goal for 2017 is to help you to claim the ownership of your image. Many factors in life and success depend on other people and sometimes just on plain luck. But your image is one of the few things you have full control of.

This year it’s time to start acting like you own it, big time. No apologies, no regrets. It’s yours and it always was. 2017 will reveal the best in you! Book your appointment here.

I would also like to inform you that I on Image’s new 2017 price list will be released on 31st January 2017. My services are now still available for 2016 pricing for appointments made in January 2017 and used latest February 28th 2017.
