Women’s History Month
What is the significance of Women’s History Month?
Women’s History Month is a celebration that both focuses on women’s achievements and reflects on the work that still needs to be done for gender equality around the world. It is celebrated in March in the UK, US, and Australia to correspond with International Women’s Day on 8 March.
The month of March offers a plethora of opportunities for us to honour women and embrace aspects of the female experience, but we can continue to celebrate and commemorate women throughout the year.
Getting everyone involved
Consulting with staff or network groups on what your organisation does around Women’s History Month (and other key diversity and inclusion events throughout the year) is key.
A diverse group of people will generate more creative solutions; therefore, senior leadership should aim to consult with all staff members and communicate authentically in a way that inspires trust, loyalty, and wellbeing.
What can you do?
We have put together a useful collection of events and resources that includes activities you may wish to consider when planning events for Women’s History Month or the months beyond March.
