is the theme for International Women's Day 2014.
It calls for challenging the status quo for women's equality and vigilance
inspiring positive change.
We are proud to be able to contribute to the celebrations with a poster
demonstrating women in the NHS workforce, and two articles published in the
international women’s day supplement 2014. The supplement has been distributed
through The Independent and Evening Standard newspapers, International Women’s
Day events, universities and educational institutions.
Gill Bellord, director of employment relations and reward
celebrates women's contributions to the NHS by asking "When you
think about who makes decisions about the future of the NHS who do you think
about? How about the people who provide your care? Who comes to mind – are they
male or female? Read Gill'sarticle in full.
Professor Carol Baxter CBE, head of equality, diversity and human
rights talks about the contribution of migrant women in the NHS
and why she was drawn to the UK to train as a nurse back in the 1960's. Read Carol'sarticle in full.
Our women in the NHS poster provides information and statistics about women's
working hours, migrant women working in the NHS and the spread of women across
the Agenda for Change bands and medical professions.
