Residents of Clúid who choose to challenge
International Women’s Day takes place each year on March 8th, this year’s theme is choose to challenge.
The past 12 months have been some of the most challenging times of recent history. Clúid’s vision is a society where everyone has a great place to live, and with that in mind, the team have worked with residents to bring them together over the past year through the National Resident Advisory Group (NRAG). NRAG was established in February of 2020 and is made up of a diverse range of people from across the Clúid resident body. Two prominent members of NRAG are women who have “chosen to challenge” in order to build an inclusive, sustainable, and diverse community.
“I joined NRAG to give something back, so together we could establish foundations for diverse, inclusive communities.
We learn from each other to create spaces that reflect who we are and how we live as friends and neighbours, enriching and strengthening our environment for all residents. Belonging, homes and neighbourhoods give us our roots.“
“What motivated me to join NRAG was the prospect of contributing to positive social change. For me, NRAG represents a productive forum that welcomes discussions around resident-centred issues and ideas, and to create solution focused approaches that promote inclusivity and diversity. Don’t be afraid to voice your ideas, they are all worthwhile in contributing to making our communities more sustainable and cohesive.“
Clúid aims to achieve our vision of a society where everyone has a great place to live by providing high-quality housing and services that enable people to create homes and thriving communities. Dorothy, Aimee, and all the members of NRAG are working hard alongside Clúid in order to deliver this vision for all residents.
