International Women’s Day

On Thursday 5th March we were very fortunate to welcome back old grammarian Kim Henderson (1987), who presented to the school community at our International Women’s Day breakfast.

This year’s theme was “Each for Equal” emphasizing the importance of gender equality in society and the workplace. Kim as Director, Policy and Evaluation at Our Watch spoke about her time at CGGS, what lead her to embark on becoming a women’s rights activist and the achievements and pit falls she experienced along the way.

It was wonderful to hear about Kim’s extensive work experience and her vision for Australia as she is passionate about women’s rights, speaking about violence against women and girls, the economic empowerment of women and encouraging women and girls to strive to be leaders.

We thank everyone who attended this fantastic event, and thank Kim for taking the time to talk to us.
