Discover empowering art inspired by
wise words from the women of Samsung

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve brought together inspiring women from within Samsung and beyond to share their points of view.

Three different illustrations are put together as a collage. The first illustration shows a woman's face. She has long, curvy hair decorated with flowers. Her eyelashes are extensive and she has freckles on her cheeks. Her one hand is holding small figures holding one another's hand. The background is filled with rain, sun and a rainbow. The second illustration portrays women posing confidently arm in arm. The background color is pink and the women are in red, white, dark blue and brown. The third illustration is filled with a range of different women doing things which excite them. It's a montage that has fine details of each person's actions. Examples are a wheelchair basketball player, a soccer player, a businesswoman and a musician — the colors are vibrant and the copy reads "Power in Passion."

With International Women's Day taking on greater meaning for many of us this year, we asked our women colleagues of various backgrounds to share what motivates and empowers them to be their best.

We then took select testimonials to talented female illustrators, who interpreted their stories to create three dynamic artworks that shine a light on women's empowerment and their achievements.

In sharing everyone's unique experiences, the overarching lesson we all came to realize is that great ideas can come from anyone, no matter their skill level, gender or background — an important revelation at a company whose mission it is to help people everywhere defy barriers.

Learn what three of our colleagues say women's empowerment means to them, and get to know the artistic talent bringing their wisdom to life.

Reflecting on the strong female voices and unstoppable leadership potential Katrina touched on, artist Maria redefined the archetypal woman, who holds up a chain of smaller female figures climbing up a mountain together, helping each other on their way to raise their flag.

“I feel inspired by stories of collective resilience, mutual respect and the spirit of female solidarity.”

With an eye-catching composition that highlights the importance of allyship with positivity and joy, Bárbara’s illustration creates an impactful image through the use of pattern and repetition.

“Being part of this project is a celebration of the unique union between all women of the world. I hope women see my work and feel we are all walking hand in hand together, into the future.”
