INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
Interview with Chef De Partie Kelly Gatt
International Women’s Day is dedicated to women around the world and is a celebration of the great success of women along with remembering the voices of many women that go unheard and who continue to be dominated from securing their rights and realising their full potential.
The objective of Women’s Day is to express love and gratitude towards women’s’ contribution to our lives and society. It honours the power and struggles of women who have broken all barriers and reached the pinnacle of success in every sphere of life.
As part of the EMC Group Geelong, Wah Wah Gee and Wah Bah proudly boasts a workforce with 60% of the supervisory and management roles held by women, ten years ago – this was only 10%!
We love to celebrate International Women’s Day each year across our venues. We recently chatted with Kelly Gatt – our talented Chef De Partie in the Wah Wah family about her take on International Women’s Day. Kelly is a young, motivated and truly inspirational young women who is paving her career path with us as a Chef. She loves all things pastry and recently took a trip to San Francisco to extend her knowledge in cake making. Kelly also has a passion for 1950’s music and dance!
Kelly, what does International Woman’s Day mean to you?
International woman’s day is a day where we are able to look at the strong, powerful woman that have come before us, see the challenge that they had to faced and the progress that we are making. There are many women out that they are raising awareness and have a voice that they are able to share around the world.
If you could have dinner with any woman – living or passed, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
One of the many people that I would love to sit and have dinner with would be Ellen DeGeneres. My reason being that she is someone that is using her platform to be that voice for others. I would love to be able to sit down with such an empowering women that has given the world her platform to share.
What do you think is the most pressing issue for women in 2019?
Equality is still a very big part of today issues. In 2018 – 2019 we have had some outstanding women break down the barriers to this issue, but I think there are still problems that we are going to have to continue to work on.
