"Giving you peace of mind in a challenging world"

International Women's Day


08 March 2018 - RPS PARTNERSHIP

As  the world celebrated International Women's Day yesterday, we at RPS Partnership, wanted to recognise the wonderful work our female trainers are doing around the world working with some amazing clients; many of whom are women.

We have trained female freelance journalists in Mexico, Tanzania, South Sudan, Uganda, Tunisia, DRC and further afield. We have worked in other sectors of oil and gas, banking and the NGO world and charity sectors; all with increible women working in some countries where it is hard and difficult to be a women.

We are currently running a project where we are training Libyan trainers to work in Libya to support freedom of the press and some of the trainers are women; which is fantastic to see. Our female trainer on the project ensures that they have an excellent role model to watch and learn from.

We find that our female trainers can relate to our female clients and run trainnig which reflects their cultural sensitivities in many countries.

Contact us on info@rpspartnership.com if you are interested in talking to one of our female consultants and we can talk through the type of training we can run for you. They are all qualified as trainers and experienced at working in some of the world's most difficult and hostile countries.

We thought you may be interested to know what the International Womens' Day is all about. 

Why do we celebrate Women's Day on March 8?

International Women's Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women's achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women's Rights and International Peace.

International Women's Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognised for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. International Women's Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

Since those early years, International Women's Day has assumed a new global dimension for women in developed and developing countries alike. The growing international women's movement, which has been strengthened by four global United Nations women's conferences, has helped make the commemoration a rallying point to build support for women's rights and participation in the political and economic arenas.

Why do we celebrate International Women's Day on March 8?

Elsewhere in Europe, on or around 8 March of the following year, women held rallies either to protest the war or to express solidarity with other activists. ... 

What is the theme of International Women's Day 2018?

Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. There's a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

To quote a blog we found at one.org, who said "We’re living through an incredible moment in history, surrounded by inspiring examples of what is possible when injustice is called out and people come together to say “no more” to inequality. These movements are changing conversations, changing culture, and changing laws."

This International Women’s Day, RPS Partnership wanted to celebrate the amazing work that’s been done by amazing women everyday around the world and we are proud to say we are contributing to this with our incredible team of female trainers.
