BCH Annual International Women’s Day Event

On Friday 4th March Banyule Community Health and the Women of West Heidelberg hosted our annual International Women’s Day Event. A large crowd listened to key note speaker, former Attorney General and Health Minister Nicola Roxon address the audience on how to make society fairer for women. I’ve been informed the event was a huge success and much thanks must go to Wendy Ogden (Convener of Women of West Heidelberg), Rhonda Nelson (Master of Ceremonies), Jamie Baxter (Panel member), Sharyn Lovett (Acknowledgement of Country).

A special thank you to the Women of West Heidelberg who organised the event, produced gifts for all guests and fundraised throughout the year for the event. Their involvement in the day is crucial and creates the warm environment that many talk about when attending a Banyule Community Health event.

At the event a short film was played gathering thoughts of community members and staff.  Please watch and share the video and continue to have these conversations.
