International Women’s Day March 8th 2021
Today, on International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, we at #SKbiotekIreland held a virtual event.
This day last year, we celebrated the event with an afternoon tea and cakes; oblivious to what was to come. Therefore, this year we choose our own theme…‘Coping with life in the new norm’, with an emphasis on being kind to ourselves, as the one-year anniversary of living with Covid, is fast approaching.
The event led by Site Lead, Joyce Fitzharris, VP, General Manager, SK biotek Ireland, involving twelve strong women from across #SwordsCampus, each sharing their personal journeys and inspiring us with everyday stories, which emphasized what STRONG women – mothers, daughters, friends, colleagues, managers, department heads, associate directors, directors, and site lead – we work with, and the strong women they came from, and the strong women they are raising.
Quotes from the event…
‘Wellbeing is made visible in kindness and compassion…’
‘Embrace each challenge in your life as an opportunity for self-transformation…’
‘Never stop learning…’
‘Acknowledge the strong women around you…’
‘One run can change your day…many runs can change your life’
