The very first International Women’s Day (IWD) was first celebrated in 1911 and is still celebrated in this day and age on the 8th March and what a day it is to celebrate. We have come such a long way from 1908 where women were subjected to inequality and maltreatment; to a day and age where women are as equal as men. With 15,000 women marching in New York City in 1908 to appeal for us to receive a pay increase, shorter hours and the right to vote; it has been over a century since and the world is a place where women and girls feel empowered every day.
This year the theme for IWD is #BalanceforBetter. With the world constantly evolving the human race needs to match this forward thinking world and create a gender-balanced universe. We all have a role and it is our job to fulfil this all the time, everywhere we go. At Secure Healthcare Solutions, we fully support #BalanceforBetter. As Balance is not considered a women’s issue and more so a business issue Secure Healthcare Solutions are proud to say we allow all of our agency nurses, support workers and Healthcare assistants the same opportunities as one another.
With a gender-balanced workplace, a collective sex of agency staff members and a cultural management team Secure Healthcare Solutions are supporting #BalanceforBetter
