Recognizing our wonderful women and girls
This week Cairns Hockey is acknowledging some wonderful women and girls leaders in our sport. March 8th is International Women’s Day and here at Cairns Hockey we are celebrating WOMEN’S WEEK with an opportunity to nominate women and girls who have played a leading role in supporting women and girls and celebrating the positive opportunities being involved in hockey can bring so we can recognize these women and girls with a Certificate of Appreciation.
Just email email@example.com the name of the nominee, the club or team they are associated with and 20 words or less why these women and girls inspire you. We will do the rest
International Women’s Day 8th March 2018
Around the world from grassroots activity to global campaigns, many groups support International Women’s Day in purposeful and meaningful ways. The level and depth of awareness raising is deep and impressive, vast and significant. Celebrating the groups who champion International Women’s Day in highly innovative and effective ways provides direction and inspiration for others. Sharing best practice not only inspires others to achieve great outcomes for women, but sets a benchmark for activity.
International Women’s Day 2018 campaign theme: #PressforProgress
With the World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away – there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women’s equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more – there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity. And while we know that gender parity won’t happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. International Women’s Day is not country, group or organisation specific. The day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. So together, let’s all be tenacious in accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let’s all Press for Progress.
