March 2nd, 2019 is just a couple of days away. For the past year all the amazing vendors have been busily preparing for another wonderful Women in Wellness Expo. The vendors are lined up and ready to go, guest speaker is set and food is planned. …all we need is you!
As always, this event will feature the amazing women from our community and surrounding areas who have dedicated their lives to living a life of purpose and healing. Be sure to check back often to this site as updates are made on the vendors page and to find out about other events in Marmora between March 1 -8.
This year’s theme is “Balance for Better”.…better world that is. How can we all work together to make this a more gender balanced world? Let us know what you personally are doing or your workplace and community are doing. Are there areas you still see as needing some “work”? Let us know!
The following is from the International Women’s Day website:
Year long activity and collaboration
The future is exciting. Let’s build a gender-balanced world.
Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence.
Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
The 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign runs all year long. It doesn’t end on International Women’s Day.
The campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize continuous collective action, with #BalanceforBetter activity reinforced and amplified all year.
Let’s build a gender-balanced world
Balance is not a women’s issue, it’s a business issue. The race is on for the gender-balanced boardroom, a gender-balanced government, gender-balanced media coverage, a gender-balance of employees, more gender-balance in wealth, gender-balanced sports coverage …
Gender balance is essential for economies and communities to thrive.
Collectively we can all play a part
Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.
The first International Women’s Day occurred in 1911, supported by over one million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
Gloria Steinem, world-renowned feminist, journalist and activist once explained “The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights.”
So put your hands out and STRIKE THE #BalanceforBetter POSE and make International Women’s Day YOUR day – and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.
Amplify via social media
Post your #IWD2019 message on social media with your “hands out” balance pose for a strong call-to-action for others to also help forge a #BalanceforBetter.
