International Women’s Day: celebrating incredible women

International Women’s Day: celebrating incredible women

This year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter and reflects the global movement towards gender equality. Today we celebrate the amazing things women can achieve and their limitless potential.

In our organisation we are fortunate to work with many talented and passionate men and women. We also support many women in their journey towards their goals and dreams.

While we can’t mention them all, here are three such women who’ve used their passions to achieve success in different ways.

A lifelong learner

Our queen of carrots Catherine has been working at 1905 Catering for almost two years now. She makes up an integral part of our team and has a key role in preparing food for all our orders.

She’s a warm, welcoming person and is popular with staff at the WA Police headquarters. During her time with us she’s worked hard to learn new culinary techniques and build her customer service skills.

From here she’s keen to take on more responsibilities like assisting with deliveries and front-of-house duties. Keep up the great work!

Helping others in need

It takes a big heart to devote time and effort to help others. But that’s what Melissa is passionate about – she volunteers at both the Community Visitors’ Scheme and Red Cross Telecross program. She puts her natural communication skills to good use by providing support and companionship to elderly people.

Melissa really enjoys the activity and the friendships she’s developed so far. Volunteering has also helped her focus on building skills towards employment, so it’s a win-win for everyone!

Pursuing passions with courage

Our talented performer and songwriter Stacee wowed us last year with her many creative pursuits. With her passion for spreading awareness and understanding of disability, she created a short film that was shortlisted at the 2017 Focus on Ability Festival.

In addition to this, the organisers were so impressed that she was invited to perform at the Gala Awards Night in Sydney!

In 2018 she made another short film and performed in various events such as the Fringe Festival. Stacee is a driven young woman who also maintains volunteering and work commitments. We have no doubt she’ll continue to pursue her dreams in 2019 too!
