Celebrating International Women’s Day


March 8 is International Women’s Day.  This global celebration is over a century old, having first been held in 1911.  The theme for 2024 is Inspire Inclusion – when we inspire others and value women’s inclusion, we build a better world.

Through inspiring inclusivity for women, we can help grow a sense of belonging, self-esteem, and empowerment.    Everyone everywhere can inspire inclusion for the women in their lives, or for the women they have never met.   Embracing our diversity – including age, race, ability, body image are all aspects that we can inspire inclusivity.  For more information on how you and your workplace can support International Women’s Day – visit the website.

With a spotlight on women, we can take the opportunity to highlight our health needs and prioritise time to ensure we are keeping on top of our screenings, checks and requirements.   Throughout our lifespan, women have different needs and requirements than our male counterparts.  Puberty, childbearing, and menopause are just a few of the major events that require specific needs to sustain us through these periods.  Find out more about these requirements here or see your health professional for individual advice and support.

So when March 8 rolls around this year, remember to take the time to turn to the women in your life – whether it be at work or home, acknowledge the contribution that they make to your world.

Thanks to all the women who inspire me.  #InspireInclusion
