International Women’s Day
It’s International Women’s Day and we’re called upon to #BreaktheBias. At Mainbrace we are committed to inclusivity and this means we must always be conscious of potential bias and take action to address it when we see it. It’s something we expect of our people and we’re a better company because of it.
#IWD2022 is also a celebration and because of the women at Mainbrace, we have much to celebrate. Every day they make a meaningful difference and we benefit from the profound impact they have on our business. So today is about reflecting on those positive impacts and letting our gratitude be known.
Take a moment today to reflect on the contributions the women in our life have made. Be it in the professional or personal realm, these contributions will be invaluable, their impacts profound.
While today is important to celebrate the achievements of women, it’s also an important reminder of the need for everyone to raise awareness against bias, wherever and whenever they encounter it, and to take action for equality at all times.
Head of People and Culture Carolyn Cavanough says: “The Break the Bias theme challenges us to be vigilant in identifying and calling out biases when we encounter them. We’re proud of our inclusive culture and IWD is an important reminder of the need for us to work to protect it and to take action for equality at all times.”
This year, Mainbrace has made a donation to The Gidget Foundation on behalf of all our female colleagues. Gidget Foundation Australia is one of the charities we chose to align with for our MbRACE Major Initiative.
The Gidget Foundation exists to support the emotional wellbeing of expectant and new parents to ensure they receive timely, appropriate and specialists care.
One in five women, and one in ten men will experience perinatal depression and anxiety.
The money we have donated will cover a family’s complete care with Gidget Foundation Australia over the course of a whole year.
