International Women’s Day – March 8
Today is not just about celebrating the nearing of the weekend, it’s about celebrating women everywhere; today is International Women’s Day!
This year’s International Women’s Day’s theme is #BalanceforBetter. This day is not country, group or company specific, in fact, today is a worldwide celebration. Every year on March 8, around the globe, the story of women’s struggle for equality is being told through the celebration of the social, economic and political achievements of women around the world.
At Interite Healthcare Interiors, we are spending this day, and every day, appreciating all that our hardworking women do for us. Without them, we most definitely would not be where we are today.
Each of our offices across the nation are showing the unity, reflection, advocacy and action for International Women’s Day, with the goal to accelerate and influence gender equality. Here are some interesting statistics from the Australian Human Rights Commission that we, at Interite Healthcare Interiors, want to increase greater awareness towards:
- There were 17-million new cases of cancer in 2018,
- There were about 9.6-million deaths from cancer in 2018, and
- About 33% of cancer cases worldwide are linked to tobacco smoke exposure.
Join us in the mission to push for greater action and together build a gender-balanced world.
