Today is International Women’s Day and we are being asked to #BeBoldForChange.
So to mark this important day for women, our Strong Families, Strong Communities team and Villawood Senior Citizens Volunteers got together for a #IWD lunch at the Villawood Senior Citizens Centre.
Members of the Villawood community joined group leaders and members of the Vietnamese, Arabic and Craft Groups supported by Woodville Alliance to celebrate all the strong women in the room.
We had discussions about strong women who had had major influences in our lives, the value of women and how we could all play a part in helping drive better outcomes for women. In other words: women supporting women!
#BeBoldForChange was a major topic of discussion and women in the room discussed what it all means to them. The lunch gathering ended on a sweet note with handmade purple cupcakes, made by our very own Strong Minds Team Manager.
Meanwhile, staff across Woodville Alliance came together at our Fairfield office to hear from our CEO Pam Batkin about how far women have come but how much more there is to be done!
Much will be written today about women and this year’s celebration, but for now, we share with you some inspirational quotes by women for women.
