International Women’s Day 2023 is encouraging everyone to #EmbraceEquity. ‘Equity’ has connotations of ‘even’, ‘fair’ and ‘equal’. However, more so, ‘Equity’ recognises each individual has their own set of circumstances, and allocates the tailored resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome. The term fully promotes inclusivity.
As Kibble values belonging and has the ambition for all to be included in forming lasting connections, we understand the importance of equity. It is our hope for all to feel safe, supported and empowered to fulfil potential.
Three women who lead by example in creating an inclusive environment at Kibble have shared their words of wisdom in the hope of motivating everyone to continually move forwards and look ahead optimistically.
Be brave, be bold and push yourself out of your comfort zone at every opportunity.Jackie Blair, Head of Education
Natalie Connell, Acting Head of Operations, expressed her understanding of challenges and offered words of strength, “Life can be difficult and no one is perfect. Remember, it is ok to make mistakes. Life is about taking tiny steps and progressing slowly towards your goals. You may be struggling today, however, your struggles do not define you as a person.
“Hold onto hope, take one step at a time and embrace the support around you. Things will get better and easier.”
Melissa Isaac, Service Manager, provided inspirational encouragement, “Always have faith in yourself and push yourself out of your comfort zone to learn and achieve more. Whenever you fail, dust yourself off and try again.”
Karen Kerr, HR Manager, shared, “Go for what you want in life, don’t be afraid to dream big and be passionate about what you love. Life is what you make of it and whatever path you decide is right for you in life will be the right one – and remember to have fun along the way. You only live once!”
We encourage you to always remember these words of wisdom.
