Municipality celebrate Women in the Workplace

West Coast District Municipality launched its Women’s Month Campaign with various internal and external activations. At the official launch of Women’s Month Cllr Maranda Schrader encouraged the women to create a legacy for future generations.
She used the theme “Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow” to encourage staff to be the change in society to create a better future for all.
In addition to the internal activations the municipality’s Disaster Management and Fire and Rescue Services partnered with Emergency Medical Services to celebrate the elderly women by visiting ACVV Huis Moorrees, a retirement home in Moorreesburg. The team donated @Spekbome@ to the elderly ladies under the theme “Grow where you are planted”. The purpose of the visit was to acknowledge the women for the sacrifices they make and for the role they play in society.
Other Women’s Month activities for the month of August include a decor and themed exhibition of all municipal buildings, seed planting and nurturing competition, “Doek Friday” where the ladies will have a chance to wear innovative and colourful headwraps and a “No Handbag Day” . All these activations will lead up to a Women’s Breakfast on the 25th of August 2022.
