What is International Women's day?
International Women's Day (IWD) is a global event that celebrates
positive change for women. Each year there is a theme to support women
and this year the theme is about the unification of individuals,
colleagues and communities to motivate each other and commit to
accelerating equality for women.
International Women's Day is on the 8th of March and the
official hashtag for the day is #PressforProgress
Women at TAFE NSW
Women are supported and welcome at TAFE NSW campuses no matter their
industry preference. TAFE NSW encourages and facilitates a learning
environment for every student to succeed within their chosen career pathway.
Being yourself and enjoying what you do rather than doing what you
think you should do is key to a successful and rewarding career.
Today, we are seeing a growing trend of female students who have
shifted their mindset away from traditional professions and are
succeeding in an array of industry sectors. They are true to
themselves and have found happiness simply by following their passion
to achieve their ultimate career.
