SustainHealth: International Women’s Day. #EachforEqual
At SustainHealth Recruitment, we work across various health and wellbeing industries where women are generally well represented. We are proud to work directly with and engage with women on a daily basis to empower them to achieve their best in their workplaces and their lives. SustainHealth Recruitment is currently an all-female team lead by our director and founder, Kay Reynoldson, who is passionate about women lead businesses and women in health. Whilst healthcare does have wide-ranging female representation, a trend that we at SustainHealth have recognised in the health and wellbeing sector is that women are being underrepresented in leadership positions across Australia. Our team is passionate and focused on advocating for change and increasing awareness around this matter, with the hope of influencing positive change in the market.
Women are Well-Represented in Healthcare, Just Not at the Top!

Share the Dignity is an Australian women’s charity focused on helping women who are experiencing domestic violence, homelessness or poverty throughout Australia. SustainHealth for multiple years have partnered with Share the Dignity #itsinthebag campaign, last year our amazing team, clients and candidates kindly donated 33 goodie bags to women and girls in need. We all have the power to make life a little better for a woman or girl experiencing homelessness or poverty by donating a handbag or wash bag full of essential items to the #itsinthebag collection. The festive season can be a difficult time for some, by donating these gifts, it is our way of giving back to those less fortunate at this time of year.
SustainHealth is dedicated to working towards a fair and equitable healthcare workforce where women can have leadership positions and have a clear career progression. SustainHealth works with many communities across Australia and we have a responsibility to make a change.
