April 15, 2021 – LightShift360, LLC CEO and Founder Gail M. Carter celebrated this year’s International Women’s Day in the company of many successful women in a roundtable live stream that was based in Australia.
The event was titled, “From Challenge Comes Change”, #ChooseToChallenge. Along with other accomplished women, Gail M. Carter took a break from business to share and sensitize viewers about ways to reduce cultural bias, gender bias, and inequality in workplaces.
The theme of the event, #ChoosetoChallenge encourages individuals to take a stand against gender bias and inequality.
Gail and the team at Vanguard Australia and FEW came together on International Women’s Day (IWD), not only to point out the problems but also offer solutions. The roundtable talk encouraged viewers to take responsibility by challenging events of gender bias. It pointed out the importance of adequate representation and also the role of organisations and leaders in creating cultures of inclusion.
Gail suggested that gaining cultural awareness about other people’s way of life is crucial to respecting their beliefs and possibly partaking in them. In her own words, she said, “I feel that having cultural awareness and talking through issues to help people embrace other cultures is important. That’s why I believe traveling around the world helps so much too because it creates empathy and it creates awareness so that people don’t create false stereotypes.”
“Knowing your strengths, your values and your why or why you’re here, I really believe creates that authenticity in oneself”. – Gail M. Carter

She poses the following questions to everyone who may not be living their dream, “Do you sometimes struggle with self-confidence, feelings of self-worth and negative self-talk that comes up every now and then? Do you find yourself constantly comparing yourself to others or do you sometimes put yourself last, feeling stuck, leaving you stressed, exhausted and not fulfilling your dreams?”
