International Women’s Day 2021 – “Women in Leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”
The UN theme for IWD this year reflects the goal for women’s full and effective participation and decision making in public life. Balanced gender representation on Whitehorse City Council is well established, and six of our 11 Councillors are women this term.
“While we have been fortunate to have had a balance of distinguished women and men serve as Mayor over many years, I am proud and humbled to this year serve as the inaugural Deputy Mayor. I pay tribute to the significant contribution of the women of Whitehorse, especially throughout the pandemic. They consistently serve our families and community quietly and without much recognition as carers, volunteers, business owners and community leaders. I am delighted to be associated with these wonderful women and wish them all a happy International Women’s Day.”
