Synergi’s International Women’s Month Series

The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is Each for Equal. That an equal world is an enabled world. A world where we feel empowered to challenge stereotypes, fight bias and celebrate women’s achievements. About how the power of the collective and collaboration can co-create a ‘gender equal world’.

Inspired by this message, Synergi is using International Women’s Month to highlight the narratives of women championing new pathways and outcomes for ethnic minority people experiencing severe mental distress, tackling systemic and structural racism, elevating the voices of the unheard and campaigning for policy change at local and national levels.

These women are experts by experience, carers, researchers, activists and practitioners. Like many, they are women who are doing the work, where it matters, yet are often operating under the radar in male-dominated spaces with largely male-focused narratives.

Until 31 March 2020, we will be featuring blog posts and interviews with just some of these amazing women: Dr Cassandra Addai, Ann-Marie, Dr Angela Byrne, Professor Stephanie Hatch, Anna-Theresa Jieman, Anita Kumari, Dr Karen Newbigging, Lady Phyll and Naomi Sumner Chan, and possibly more.

Tell us about women you know who are doing impactful work in their homes, communities and systems.
