Today is International Women’s Day, a whole day to celebrate the awesome achievements of our sisters, mothers, colleagues and friends. At Skinovation, we’re passionate about celebrating everything wonderful about our fierce community of females. Whether you have a morning tea to celebrate, or just take time to reflect, we want to remind you this International Women’s Day, that you are a strong, powerful, and beautiful woman.
The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a Covid-19 World. The United Nations Women’s Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said,
“We need women’s representation that reflects all women and girls in all their diversity and abilities, and across all cultural, social, economic and political situations. This is the only way we will get real societal change that incorporates women in decision-making as equals and benefits us all.”
At Skinovation, we totally agree with this! Our 100% female team includes five incredibly talented and experienced professionals:
- Dr Helena Rosengren – MBChB, FRACGP, FACSCM, FSCCA, MMed, MPHTM, DRCOG
- Maree – Registered Nurse
- Laura – Registered Nurse
- Aleisha – Practice Manager / Client Liaison
- Angela – Clinic Supervisor/ Client Liaison
Supporting Townsville’s women of all ages
We are passionate about helping women to look and feel their best. As Estee Lauder said, “Confidence breeds beauty”. Ultimately, many of our clients often approach us to improve their self-confidence, allowing them to tackle the day as the most confident version of themselves.
We are also passionate about supporting women of all ages through our sponsorships of important programs. Last year, we invested in the personal development conference called Choose You Empowerment Event. Choose You was all about making yourself, and your own goals a priority. As women, we spend a lot of time caring for the important people in our lives, but often our own self-care takes a backseat. Therefore, investing in events like this help to remind ourselves that our own goals and health are important.
Our self image is developed from a young age, so that’s why we think it’s important to help young women in our community to feel empowered and enhance their own positive self esteem. At Saint Margaret Mary’s College, we supported a 12 week ‘self love makeover’ program called the Big Sister Experience. The pressures of social media and the perceived need to be perfect all the time make can have a terrible impact on the mental health of young women. Developing positive self esteem as a teen is a pathway to success as they come into adulthood.
As we come into 2021, we’re constantly looking for new ways to invest in our beautiful community of women in Townsville.
Don’t just take today to celebrate yourself and the powerful community of females you surround yourself with. Remember each and every day that your contribution as a woman is important.
Happy International Women’s Day from the team at Skinovation!
