Carmel College celebrates International Women’s Day for 2019 by striking the #BalanceforBetter pose!

International Women’s Day aims to raise awareness of the many issues faced by women across the world such as period poverty, gender pay gap and female genital mutilation.

It’s also a celebration of the many achievements of women across all industries and fields, providing inspiration for younger generations.

This year the IWD #BetterforBalance campaign for 2019 encourages people to stand up for gender-balance within:

  • Boardrooms
  • Government
  • Workplaces
  • Media
  • Pay
  • Sports

For this reason, the Carmel Community  have been coming together throughout the day to strike the #BetterforBalance pose. Many thanks to all the staff and students who got involved raise awareness of  women’s rights as well as gender equality.
