HSE Celebrates International Women’s Day  –  Thursday, 8th March 2018

International Women’s Day is a global day of celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.  This day also marks a ‘call to action’ for accelerating gender parity globally.

One of the actions linked to our People Strategy 2015 – 2018 Leaders in People Services is the promotion of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion.  It is our ambition to promote the principles of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion across the system, valuing different perspectives, depth of experience and the strength and potential of individual teams.

The HSE is committed to creating a positive working environment whereby all employees are respected, valued and can reach their full potential.
