Happy International Women’s Day!

Happy International Women’s Day!


Every year March is a chance to celebrate women and to raise awareness of the challenges women face in order to bring about positive change for all.

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50:50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality” so, regardless of your gender, let me ask you a couple of questions………

Q1. What will you do this month to celebrate women?

From something as simple and respectful as a compliment for all the hard work a female colleague, friend or family member has put in, to attending an IWD event or even hosting one yourself. If you’re a female, why not celebrate yourself too? Go on I dare you! Give yourself a compliment or a pat on the back for all you do; get together with a couple of girlfriends for a morning tea or a movie; book yourself in to a personal development course (we have a great suggestion below!)

Q2. What will you do this month to support women and girls?

What can you do to help a woman or girl achieve their ambitions? Who can you mentor, sponsor or speak up for? How about joining the EY ‘Pledge for Parity’ to assist in creating more supportive and progressive working environments for women, or contributing to a female focused charity.

Here are some great resources and further ways you can celebrate and support women this IWD:

UN Women – Australia
UN Women – International
International Women’s Day and EY Pledge for Parity
International Women’s Day Facebook 

Now…. about that personal development course………!
