To me it’s a time to respect those women who everyday work hard to deliver real change to benefit others. If can be someone locally running a drop in club for new mothers – who are naturally terrified of the responsibility – to people like Helen Taylor Thompson – 93yrs young who was a spy in WWII, set up the first AIDS hospice in Europe and now works in using technology in the treatment of AIDS patients.
No matter how small their impact is on our lives, for me, it’s about telling them!
I am honoured to work with some amazing people on Growing Talent (www.growing-talent.co.uk). Today I received an email from one of them who was on the programme over 2 years ago to thank me for my support. I’m still buzzing!
‘Happy international women’s day!! Thanks for encouraging me to seek counselling and stay strong, it’s what got me through a lot and still keeps me going. Had to thank you once again in light of today as it’s what inspires me to stay strong so I can encourage other women one day.’
Why not use this auspicious day to tell those women who inspire you, about the impact they have had on you. You’ll make their day and give solid meaning to #IWD2018!
