To mark International Women’s Day on March 8 2022, the Gold Coast Bulletin (a daily newspaper serving Australia’s Gold Coast region) compiled a list of the city’s most influential women. As you begin to read down the list of prestigious and inspiring health experts, athletes and entrepreneurs, you don’t have to go far before seeing the name of Support the Girl’s very own CEO and Founder, Jane Holmes.
STGA are committed to supporting women by providing basic needs, connecting with them via conversations, and to support by connecting them to the right services. The Outreach Project is not just about giving away bras and toiletries, it is about working alongside services.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is synonymous with a call to action, and 2022 is no different. In the age of intersectionality, IWD stays on track with the ambition to #BreakTheBias. Looking towards small actions make big changes, this year’s theme aims to target the everyday biases that are found in our communities, workplaces and teaching institutions. It calls for all people to take part in removing stereotypes and discrimination by celebrating diversity and difference.
What better way to epitomise STGA than the face of inspiring Aussie wom*n! From the talented stables of the Thoughtful Gift Shop team, comes the ‘Inspirational Aussie Women’ range that donates $5 directly to STGA for every item sold.
Climate change is currently an unavoidable fact of life; as global temperatures climb, extreme weather conditions increase worldwide, and sea levels continue to rise. We all care about the planet, but in the wake of these vast effects, adopting a sustainable lifestyle can often seem overwhelming and perhaps even a little futile.
