At PepTalk, we’re always thinking hard about what’s coming up for our clients and what matters the most for their employees. If you’re doing the same, we wanted to share a quick reminder of two key events happening in early 2023, plus some real-world experts who can help you inspire, educate and support.
🗓 Time to Talk Day, Thursday 2nd February 2023
It's Time to Talk about mental health. The goal is to create a supportive community that openly talks about mental health with family, friends, and colleagues. According to the National Health Service (NHS), one in four people will suffer from some kind of mental health condition every year. This means that it is more common than many people might think.
Our team of experts have firsthand experience with mental health challenges and they are here to share their stories. They will discuss the steps they took to overcome their struggles and offer advice on how to deal with mental health issues. By openly talking about mental health, we can help reduce the stigma and create a more supportive environment for everyone.
🗓 International Women’s Day, Wednesday 8th March 2023
International Women's Day (IWD) is a globally celebrated event that recognizes the social, economic, cultural, and political accomplishments of women. The day provides a platform to highlight the progress made towards gender equality and to raise awareness of the work that still needs to be done. This year's theme is #EmbraceEquity, which focuses on creating a fair and equal world for all.
At the heart of this year's theme is the goal of empowering individuals and organisations to challenge gender stereotypes, call out discrimination, draw attention to bias, and cultivate inclusion. Through education and awareness-raising initiatives, we can help everyone play their part in creating a world where differences are seen as valuable and celebrated. By embracing equity, we can work towards achieving gender balance in all areas of life, from education and employment to healthcare and politics.
Our selection of International Women's Day experts and speakers can support your organisation in this mission by providing valuable resources, training, and guidance. Together, we can work towards building a more equitable world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
