TODAY IS International Day of the Girl

International Day of the Girl

To celebrate the potential of girls in different cultures around the world, and to highlight the threats, discrimination and issues facing their well-being, join with the SCLAA today to mark 11 October as the International Day of the Girl!

A survey of more than 1700 Aussie girls has discovered most feel they are treated unequally to boys in most aspects of their lives (Plan International). At the heart of this issue is a lack of visibility about the experiences of girls – and it’s time we listened to what they have to say about this.

This is a day for us to be thankful for the women who have made such a difference to our lives. It is also a day for reflection on what we as individuals can do to improve the lives of young girls in our own communities and around the world.

Spare a moment today to consider how you could make a difference.

SCLAA fully support Women throughout the industry and are looking forward to the 2nd annual SCLAA Women in Logistics Lunch being held in Melbourne on 20 October and The Women in Logistics and Supply Chain Leadership Summit 2017 in Sydney from 30 October to 3 November.
