International Women's Day - OzChild

Celebrating International Women’s Day 2019

#BalanceforBetter #MorePowerfulTogether

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year. At OzChild we celebrate all the wonderful women who provide support, care, love, guidance and remarkable leadership – ensuring every child has the chance to shine. We are all #morepowerfultogether

OzChild employs 297 women and we are proud to have so many inspiring, talented and committed women walking and talking The OzChild Way enabling better outcomes for children, young people and families. We also acknowledge the many men who stand beside these wonderful women, those who support and help forge a more gender-balanced world #balanceforbetter

Below is a very tiny snapshot of just a few of the wonderful Women of OzChild.
