Yesterday, colleagues at Community Housing, celebrated International Women's Day (IWD 2024) with an inspiring drop-in event at their corporate Head Office. 
We celebrated the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and discussed plans to make Community Housing an even more inclusive place for female colleagues.

As well as personalised cake, mocktails, and a wellbeing goodie bag, to take away, Jan Norris, Head of People & Culture at Community Housing, delivered an impactful speech covering important topics such as gender equality, the gender pay gap within the workplace, supporting female colleagues/peers, as well as the inequalities that still stand within modern-day society.

The IWD 2024 campaign theme is #InspireInclusion. When we inspire others to understand and value women's inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there's a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment” - Jan Norris.
During the session we also announced the launch of our new Colleague Network, WomenDoingWell, a health and wellness network which will be a safe space for colleagues to talk and share specific information on health issues related to women.
