INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY BREAKFAST

IWDB1

On Friday, March 8, St Hilda’s held a celebratory International Women’s Day breakfast, honoring women’s achievements.

The first International Women's Day occurred in 1911 and is now a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Originally a women’s College when first established in 1964, St Hilda’s greatly values women’s contributions. Unification, equality and balance are key ingredients for communities to thrive.

This year’s official IWD campaign theme is” better the balance, better the world”, a message that resonates with guest speakers, Professor Emeritus Lorraine Dennerstein AO and Dr Pippa Soccio. Professor Dennerstein, a distinguished medical practitioner and specialist psychiatrist, has been a College Fellow for 25 years. Dr Soccio was Senior Common Room President in 2009 and is now a Learn Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

St Hilda’s College is extremely fortunate to have ties with a plethora of accomplished women who continue to positively impact society. From the College Founding Chair, Lady Paton and Founding College Principal, Marjorie Smart, to our resident AFLW star, Rene Caris.

It was truly inspirational to have our accomplished community members speak at the St Hilda’s IWD Breakfast. Their achievements have set a standard for current students to aspire to and we cannot wait to see the spectacular things our current cohort achieves.
