International Women’s Day 2019

This year's theme is #BalanceforBetter, focused on forging a more gender balanced world.

Staff from the Union came together on Friday the 8th of March to celebrate women around the world as part of International Women's Day.

To empower each other, staff took part in a 'secret sister' challenge where they each chose a word to describe one another. Take a look below to see the photos submitted as part of the challenge. 

1. Daring - "Women can be wizards too!"

2. Dependable

5. Supportive

Fiona (centre) named as supportive

In honour of International Women's Day, Fiona (centre) wanted to recognise her team, who all happen to be women. Fiona said: "These are 'some of the smartest, strongest and most inspiring people i've met and I'm so lucky to work with them". 

On the Union's Instagram story we asked students 'Which Women inspire you?' and answers ranged from family members and colleagues, to celebrities such as Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

Moving forward, the women of UPSU have pledged to work together to support the women around us and focus on achieving #BalanceforBetter.
