Today, International Women's Day (March 8), is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.

Bridge Housing staff attended a breakfast at the Australasian Housing Institute in Sydney to commemorate this important day for women – and everyone - globally. The 2021 IWD theme is #ChooseToChallenge.

Rebecca Pinkstone, Chief Operations Officer of Bridge Housing, was a speaker at the AHI event.

The International Women’s Day movement chose the theme #ChooseToChallenge because: A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.So let's all choose to challenge. How will you help forge a gender equal world? Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
