The Age of Recognition report is our first musings on what recognition looks like, its importance and power in today’s world, and how we can each become recognisers. Our research is supported by a survey of the UK population, insights from Psychotherapist Anna Mathur and Behavioural Psychologist Jo Hemmings.
Discover more insights about the age of recognition, explore four key areas crucial to cultivating a culture of recognition and helping others feel seen, and join us in an age of presence and thoughtfulness.
The Impact doesn't stop here...
WHY I WEAR IT
I was first diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder in January 2013. When I think back to this time in my life, I am sad, at how desperately lonely and confused I felt.
I am relieved, that 6 years later I have started to find peace and hope on a daily basis. I am grateful for steadfast family and friends who walked alongside me, and continue to do so.
Over the years, I have seen multiple doctors and therapists, on their advice taken different anxiety medications, and self-referred to counselling services then always backed out at the last minute (yes- it is still a work in progress).
And yet, the thing I know has helped me heal the most is acceptance.
Accepting my anxiety. Accepting that I have bad days, worse days, and better days. Not being fearful of the fear. Accepting the love and support that others showed me, regardless of how I was feeling...
Recognised’s heart to support the fight against modern slavery combined with their ability to create timeless, elegant pieces of jewellery inspired me to wear their anti-trafficking popon.
Having learnt about the injustices taking place across the world through the exploitation of the most marginalised in society, a sense of outrage sparked within me and fuelled my desire to try and help in any small way that I could.
Volunteering for Justice and Care allows me to take action in the fight against modern slavery and wearing my popon helps to reaffirm this passion and reflect it in a beautiful way.
To me, the Popon symbolises the recognition of those who are sold, exploited and forgotten whilst wearing it everyday, knowing that 100% profits go to organisations fighting human trafficking fills me with hope that the futures of such people can change.
I’m wearing the Dove Popon for everyone who's ever felt unrecognised.
For everyone who shows up daily, who’s putting in the work, grinding and toiling but yet to get the recognition for their craft, hard work and talent like they truly deserve.
For everyone who feels buried and hidden. Your time is coming. And the dove, for me is a reminder to be still.
To be still in the midst of the turmoil and the wait. Stillness brings peace and tranquility. And sometimes, that’s all we need to keep going.
To me, feeling recognised is being acknowledged for something positive. This makes me feel respected, admired and also encouraged. Perhaps, it’s also an indication of doing something right- when the world accepts and approves of what I am doing…
The power of the popon is the purpose of the popon
