International Women's Day

08 March 2019

Today is International Women's Day. I'd like to take a moment to personally thank each and every one of the amazing women on the Realise Futures team.

I am very fortunate. I was brought up to believe that I could do and achieve and be anything I put my mind to, no barriers were put in my way. 

I was supported when I told my school that I already knew how to cook and sew so would rather like to skip Home Economics and have a bash at woodwork and car mechanics. I was supported when I became the first person in my family ever to go to university.

We know that many of the women who attend our courses have not been so fortunate. We also know that for many, education opens up a world of possibilities. We don't only help women to gain qualifications, we support them to be confident, assertive, motivated, empowered.
