Celebrating International Women’s Day
Celebrating the need to recognise women for their worth, International Women’s Day (IWD) this year asks us to all show our commitment and choose to challenge inequality, call out bias, question stereotypes and help forge an inclusive world.
CEO of Wesley Medical Research Dr Claudia Giurgiuman has employed an inclusive team, from experts in the medical field to professionals whose shared vision is to give hope and change lives. Dr Giurgiuman, also the President of Women In Technology (WiT), understands the importance of visibility and shares the WiT desire to advance, connect and empower women across all branches of STEM.
“Our workforce proudly supports the ideals of International Women’s Day,” Dr Giurgiuman said.
“We need to not only support the change but actively work to change and create positive impacts in the lives of women. The work we do at Wesley Medical Research focuses on giving hope and changing the lives of all people in Queensland and beyond. We need our male champions to help make these impacts permanent for their mothers, partners and daughters.”
Currently, Wesley Medical Research, the official research institute for UnitingCare, has a 70:30 split of female to male staff and is committed to the development of a workforce that celebrates achievement and nurtures growth for all staff.
