HCSC staff celebrated International Women's Day on Friday afternoon at 2:00 PM (7th March) at the new building on McIlwraith street. Local women were invited to drop in at the HUB and listen to our guest speakers addressing this year's theme "opportunity is knocking".
The guest speakers inspired attendees as they spoke about opportunities that they had seized and continue to embrace both in their personal and professional life. Topics touched on health and fitness opportunities, education and vocational training availabilities in our community, business and personal growth prospects, and reconciliation challenges and opportunities.
International Women’s Day provides the perfect occasion to promote Queensland’s great opportunities, and what this means for Hinchinbrook Shire women. With Queensland’s four pillar economy on the rise, new opportunities are emerging for women in our tourism, agriculture, resources and construction industries.
