International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the achievements of women, and serves as a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day global campaign is #BreakTheBias.
This International Women’s Day we have gathered a range of FREE learning resources from leading academics, clinicians, and researchers to raise awareness.
We encourage you to explore the learning opportunities available on our website, and to share with your networks. Together we can work towards breaking the bias.
- Day in the life of a CAMHS professional
For International Women’s Day (2021) we wanted to celebrate the work of female CAMHS professionals. Dr. Sian Barnett has kindly written a blog to explain the work she does as a CAMHS clinician, the challenges she has faced, and the women that inspired her to enter a career in this field.
