Inspiring Inclusion for International Women's Day 2024

Mar 08, 2024

International Women's Day is celebrated around the world as part of a global effort to see equality and inclusion advance for women. 

First created in 1911, the annual event is now over 100 years old, and each year has seen great progress. Inviting everyone to mark the day in whatever fashion they choose, events, conversations and achievements are celebrated. 

The theme of 2024 falls around being able to #InspireInclusion for women in all capacities and situations. 

How are we marking International Women's Day 2024? 

This year, ACOUP can share how we are inspiring inclusion in our two main missions: 

  • #InspireInclusion through recruiting, retaining and developing diverse talent. 
  • #InspireInclusion through providing women and girls with access to quality education and training. 

As a healthcare recruitment agency, ACOUP work passionately to ensure the sourcing and employment of women from around the world. 

Safely and ethically recruiting healthcare and allied professionals, each women employed is given a new opportunity to advance her career. 

Within our organisation, it is paramount that women are given equal recruitment opportunities, and their skills and qualifications recognised. 

Offering job opportunities with global mobility, our team work hard to source qualified women for healthcare roles and support them through the onboarding process. 

Our recruitment and training team are led by some incredible women, who have all worked hard to get their qualifications and experience. Featuring a range of cultures and ethnicities, we are inspiring inclusion from all around the world. 

In addition, we also pride ourselves on #InspiringInclusion through providing women with access to quality education and training

The ACOUP Training Institute offers a selection of specifically desinged programs to advance careers in the healthcare and homecare industries. 

Offering everything from basic English Language training to Caregiving, our team ensure that women can enrol and upskill, learn, and grow, before seeing doors open to new employment opportunities as a result. 

Giving students both key skills in communication, and practical industry knowledge, the two can allow a career progression that would never have been possible without these programs. 

Women Inspiring Women

At ACOUP, a large proportion of our organisation is made up of women, from management level to recruitment and training staff. All working together to achieve success, we asked our inspirational women to share the woman that inspires them. 


"My mom is my biggest inspiration. Despite life's challenges, she never gives up. She taught me lessons that no textbook could ever impart, and these have shaped my character and guided my actions."


"The woman who inspires me is the Afro-American poet 'Maya Angelou'. Her resilience, wisdom and eloquence inspire me profoundly. Her words resonate with authenticity and depth, empowering me to embrace my journey with courage and grace. Angelou's life story reminds me of the transformative power of self-belief and perseverance in the face of adversity."


"My life is full of diverse individuals, each with their own unique personality, I have distinct feelings for each of them. If asked to name a person I admire the most, my best friend, Tey, would be my choice, This decision was made for a variety of reasons, but three in particular stick out; her enormous heart, her unwavering faith, and her peculiar sense of humour. One of the things I adore the most is my best friend's huge heart."


"My mother is my guiding light. Always there to provide her unwavering and unconditional love and support. She is the epitome of grace and dignity. She is a source of inspiration with her strength and determination. Her selflessness and sacrifices for our family are unmatched."


"Angelina Jolie is the person who inspires me. Not only is he beautiful and charming, but also hardworking and talented. She dedicated over 20 years of her life to work at the UN, where she helped those in need and where she was an important humanitarian partner. She is a proud parent of six children, some of whom she adopted. Also, she successfully combined these deeds with her professional sphere and became a popular actress. She won fame and changed her and others lives for the better."
