We Celebrate International Women’s Day

This International Women’s Day, Community Integrated Care was proud to celebrate the work of women and explore the theme of #EmbraceEquity, to acknowledge the contributions of women to both the charity and the social care sector.

As part of the celebrations, the organisation was proud to deliver a range of International Women’s Day events, including a women-led All Company Webinar, as well as an insightful Q&A panel with members of the charity’s Colleague Inclusion Networks.

Discussing topics such as inclusion and gender stereotypes, while sharing advice around career progression and unfair treatment, the Q&A offered Community Integrated Care’s colleagues the space to reflect on how far women’s rights have come, while recognising what progress needs to be made.

Furthermore, during the day, our organisation hosted three fantastic events on – a free virtual activities platform for people with care and support needs.

Beginning with an Inspirational Session led by Liverpool FC Women’s Gemma Bonner, the football star joined our colleagues and the people we support to share her perspective, rising to success in a traditionally male-dominated field.

Next, our people joined a special session with Team GB Boxing Coach, Amanda Groarke – offering an empowering and accessible exercise class for the people we support to enjoy with friends from across the country.

Rounding out our celebrations, we were delighted to host an amazing online concert from rising star, LOUQ. Celebrating a wide array of legendary women artists, including Shania Twain, Nina Simone and Corinne Bailey Rae, this was a concert our people won’t soon forget!

Finally, across our social media channels, we were proud to spotlight some incredible women leaders within our charity, including previous Support Worker, now Service Leader, Sammie Mayhead, and Managing Director for Scotland, Sara Murphy.

Through these events and activities, we aimed to raise awareness around bias, promote the achievements of women, and recognise the dedication of our women to the social care sector.

Thank you to all our colleagues who celebrated International Women’s Day with us, as we continue on our course to becoming the most equitable charity we can be.
