March 8th, 2019 marks International Women's Day. To help celebrate the achievements of the wonderful female community here at the PA Hospital Campus, we are holding an event for PAH staff to participate in!
Rally your department or a group of friends together and host a morning, afternoon or high tea to celebrate women's achievements and help create a #BALANCEFORBETTER this International Women's Day, March 8th 2019. This one's for all the female nurses, doctors, admin officers, clinicians, health professionals and all in between! We will also be holding an activation in the foyer of the PA Hospital from 9am-11am on March 8, where there will be health checks, a raffle, cupcakes for sale and more!
What's the impact?
Gender inequality in the workplace is common across many industries; but particularly prevalent in the area of medical research, where recent studies demonstrate research funding is largely awarded to male researchers (82% program grants recipients by National Health and Medical Research Council were male between the years 2003-2018). This lack of diversity in funding inhibits innovation, a philosophy strongly embraced by The PA Research Foundation. We support the push for gender equality across medical research and are proudly funding a number of female-led research projects in 2019. This fundraising event will allow us to continue to support female researchers and women's health, and to also celebrate women in the healthcare environment.
What's in it for me?
50 percent of the funds raised will return to your department to support patient care, staff education or other items of your choosing. This event is also a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the women in your department, while also raising funds for women in research at the PAH campus; benefitting the whole community.
