Why is Council facilitating women networking?
We take a strengths-based approach at Council, meaning we build on the strengths of the community to lead to great outcomes. By celebrating women on International Women’s Day and by encouraging women in the local community to support each other, we believe great things can happen. Many networks already exist, whether it is through women in business, or mums supporting each other, but a Council facilitated network is for all ages, all abilities, all walks of life. When we have created these events drawing together different women there has been an amazing energy and positivity. It is this spirit of learning, sharing and support that we encourage women to be a part of to create something unique. We are keen to build on this and encourage you to be a part of that.
What is International Women's Day?
International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when all women are recognised for their achievements. International Women’s Day was first born out of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.
Since those early days, International Women’s Day has grown in prominence and reach, touching women in every corner of the world. The growing international women’s movement has helped make International Women’s Day a central point for action, to build support for women’s rights and their full participation in the economy, politics, community and in everyday life.
