International Women's Day
On Tuesday 8 March 2016 Joblink Plus Tamworth took time out to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. Along with millions of others across the globe, we looked back on how far we've come, and how much remains to be achieved. Workplace equity is an issue we care deeply about at Joblink Plus, and our CEO Christine Shewry reminded us that it was only a generation ago that women were actively excluded from the workforce because of their children or spouse. Two generations ago we were fighting for the right to vote.
Today, for many of us, the challenges may be more nuanced, and the bias we hold and face may be unconscious. However, the goal of gender parity remains elusive for billions of women without access to representation, reproductive autonomy, adequate healthcare and vital education (to name just a few issues).
Why International Women's Day?
THANK YOU to our staff and our community for your support today, and every day, as we continue to work toward gender equality.
