It was great to be invited to attend an International Women’s Day event, hosted by Barclays Bank at the Liberty Stadium Swansea. International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This particular event was not only in celebration of the day, but also focussed on the career development of Women in Wales and was held under the theme “Be bold for change”.
The event gave us the opportunity to set up a Pop Up shop for the day to spread the word about fostering and Family Fostering Partners in particular, as well as hearing from some inspirational speakers.
The message from the day was that women are pretty formidable, and can do anything that they set their mind to. Courage and passion are the two key ingredients for success.
As well as an excellent networking opportunity, it gave our avid Swans fan M.D. Judith, the chance to see parts of the stadium not available to her on match days. C’mon you Swans!
So, if you are a carer with another agency or simply thinking about fostering for the first time, make the call and be “Bold for Change”. We look forward to hearing from you.
