Celebrating International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day was celebrated amongst staff here at Centacare last Friday. The gathering featured a diverse range of guest speakers, who inspired us with their stories and experiences as influential women within our community and surrounds.
The gathering allowed staff to take time out of their busy schedules and reflect on the challenging path to equality that women have encountered, along with the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women thus far.
The guest speakers reflected on this year’s theme Balance for Better, focusing on building a gender balanced world. Whilst also encouraging the audience to break through barriers, shut down stereotypes and to strive towards their desired goals.
Centacare were proud to be celebrating International Women’s Day and acknowledge the importance of gender equity in the work place. It is integral to the values of inclusion and respect that we incorporate into our work every day and we strive towards continuous improvement in our practices within this area.
