International Women's Day 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.

The theme for 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. 

The aim of this year’s International Women’s Day is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. Individuals start their journeys from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.

Lisa Hartley, Director of Student Support and Welfare, said: ‘’It is a time to reflect on the theme for this year, celebrating women's achievements and raising awareness of the bias that exists in our communities.

‘’Our College is committed to our FREDIE Principles and values the achievements and contribution of all members of our community.’’
