Advocacy

Providing a voice to the families of veterans is at the heart of everything we do.

Exclusive Webinar:
HOW CAN WE INSPIRE INCLUSION

In celebration of the women in our community, Families of Veterans Guild delivered an exclusive Webinar this International Women’s Day.
‘How can we inspire inclusion’ covered the subject of inclusion for women, noting issues we hear often about women becoming more invisible as they age.
This webinar delivered an educated conversation around inclusion and covered the impact of ageism and how it affects women of every age, the importance and benefits of intra-generational connections, and how women can build confidence and step up into positions they would otherwise shy away from. It also uncovers how to understand the traditional roles women play in society and how this can impact their broader contribution. The panel discussed how women can support each other, and the positive impact of inclusivity in executive roles and within all organisations in the community.
