International Women’s Day 2023

Today we have had the opportunity to celebrate women and the contributions they make to our community.
We commenced the day with morning tea at the HCG office, running an International Women’s Day themed trivia and sharing some insight into the day, how this fantastic day originated and some of the significant challenges women have overcome throughout history.
Then, we made our way to the Newcastle women’s domestic violence court advocacy service (WDVCAS) high tea, where women were celebrated and a bunch of local services that support Newcastle & Hunter women were able to network and enjoy the day.
WDVCAS is an amazing service offering support and advocacy to women in our community facing domestic violence. We are privileged to collaborate with them and the fantastic work they do.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for taking the time on #IWD2023 to celebrate women’s achievements and for taking on the task of ensuring equity remains prevalent in our lives.
May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.
