The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is Generation Equality. Generation Equality is a call to action to join forces across generations, to create a world where every girl and woman has equal opportunities to fulfil their full potential. At MCC, we are celebrating our 70th year of delivering inclusive and affordable learning opportunities, unlocking learning and earning pathways for a very broad and diverse range of women  - in 2019 more than 70% of our students were female and from a range of ages between 18 and over 70 from a very diverse range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.

MCC also has strong employment outcomes. Our results show that we are actively and effectively helping our students, many of whom face barriers and disadvantage, progress along a training pathway to employment.
