PROMOS OF THE WEEK

Meet Some of the Inspiring Women Behind Bouclair!

We could only feature a few, trust that there are many, more more.

 

 

There’s no denying it – the offices of Bouclair are filled to the brim with smart, talented women!

In honour of International Women’s Day, we’d like you to meet some of them.

 

 

Alanna, Content & Social Media Specialist

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I’ve been working at Bouclair for just over a year, as part of the CRM team. I handle Bouclair’s social media content, including Instagram, influencer collaborations and Facebook Messenger.

 

Who are the women you admire most?

I admire any woman who finds happiness, balance and fulfilment in whatever she wishes to do, no matter the road she takes, the societal pressure she feels or the cultural norms around her! We are lucky to live in a time where there are so many possibilities for women, but there are still unfortunate limitations and prejudices that can hold us back. It’s important for us to support each other!

 

Anne-Marie, Director of Design

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

Almost 10 years! I started as a product designer and was involved in various projects along the way. I now wear hats in both the design and marketing departments and act as the Artistic Director for our in-house photo studio.

 

Who are the women you admire most?

I have a tight-knit group of friends since high school. These 4 women are all inspiring in their own way. Our winding life paths, complicity, twisted humour, resilience and the deep respect we all have towards each other is so precious. I admire them and am incredibly happy to have them by my side.

 

Catherine, Copywriter (that’s me!)

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I’ve been part of this amazing team for just over a year now. As the company’s copywriter, I handle all written components in both English and French, including blog posts, newsletters, press kits, posters, ads and more!

 

Who is the woman you admire most?

My mom’s strength is beyond human. She has taken care of my brother, who has special needs, with unbelievable patience and devotion for the past 27 years while also staying so strong as my grandmother battled Alzheimer’s. Her contagious laugh can always be heard and puts everyone in a good mood.

 

Eugenie, Accounts Payable Clerk

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I have been at Bouclair for 34 years. I started working for the company at store level, when Bouclair was still a fabric store. After a year or so, I found a job opening in Accounts Payable and asked to be transferred. I’ve never changed department since then, I’m in my comfort zone.

 

Laurence, Supply Chain Coordinator

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I was hired as a maternity leave replacement 5 years ago and stayed on! I was first a specs technician, but now am a supply chain coordinator. All of the fabric samples, including pillows, curtains and throws, go through me. I also take care of the communication with our suppliers.

Who is the woman you admire most?

Other than my mom, I would have to say Oprah Winfrey. I’m a big fan – she started with nothing and created an empire. She also helps so many people with her money, something she doesn’t necessarily have to do.

 

Malak, Digital Marketing Coordinator

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I started working at Bouclair almost two years ago as a part-time employee in the customer service department. After I graduated, I did an internship in digital marketing and now work full time as Digital Marketing Coordinator.

 

Who’s the woman you admire most?

The woman I admire the most is my mom. I feel really inspired by the fact that, after we immigrated to Canada, she basically had to start her whole life all over again. From going back to school to purchasing her first home and her first car, she did it all while raising three children.

 

Nadia, Graphic Artist

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

Almost 8 years! I create graphics for web and print, and work on a wide variety of projects including press kits, posters, newsletters and photo retouching.

 

Who are the women you admire most?

Ok, this might sound sappy but I have an infinite admiration for my mother and my grandmother. My grandmother came from Italy and had to start off a whole new life here before starting a family of her own. She taught my mother everything she knew, including how to balance her work and personal life. They both have accomplished so much in their lives and have remained strong through it all.

 

Sonia, Buyer

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I’ve been a buyer here for 3 years. In the past year, I’ve been more involved in the design, store visual and marketing aspects of things. I love being a part of this family!

 

Who is the woman you admire most?

I can’t choose just one, I am fortunate to be surrounded by women who inspire me every day, from family members to friends and colleagues. Each one of them has a story. Elders impress me with their experience and their resilience, women my age with their energy while balancing career and home life. The new generation also motivates me and inspires me to look straight ahead.

 

Stephanie, Merchandising Assistant

How long have you been working at Bouclair?

I have been at Bouclair for about 2 years. I am an assistant merchandiser for all things wall art. This basically means that I help my buyer in all aspects of the department, from giving sample approvals to placing orders and managing deliveries.

 

Who is the woman you admire most?

The strongest woman I know would be my grandmother. She moved here from Jamaica in order to better the life of her 7 kids. She is the pillar of our family and, somehow, was able to raise those 7 strong personalities on her own.
