At The Drake Hotel on March 8th starting at 5 PM, everyone is welcome to enjoy and participate in a panel and Q&A discussion focusing on equality and women empowerment. In honour of IWD, we are proud to be hosting ”Each For Equal” – a discussion with Diviya Leonard (youth activist/social advocate), Paul Taylor (NDP Candidate/Executive Director of Food Share Canada), Zahra Siddiqui (visual artist/photographer) and Karlyn Percil (international speaker/motivator), moderated and led by Char San Pedro (founder/advocate). The conversations will be centered around encouraging action and awareness for gender equality while celebrating progress achieved. We are equally excited to highlight the work of our panelists who are making significant contributions in their fields. Our goal is to continue building community involvement on large-scale topics and to cultivate equal power and equity around the lived experiences of women, female-identified, and girls.
Advancing gender equality benefits all of us, including men and boys. It is imperative and fruitful that all persons be included in conversations concerning human welfare and social justice. As an organization, we prioritize taking steps to ensure that all of our initiatives and events are truly inclusive, diverse, accessible, and compassionate. The event is free and ALL are welcome, though guests are encouraged to pay what they can at the door and bring new feminine hygiene products (pads, preferably) for donation.
All proceeds will benefit our mission to support programs serving women and girls experiencing interlinked disparities of abuse, poverty, and social injustice.
Together we can send the message that the human rights of all women matters! Take action and join us on March 8th. Event Link: https://www.thedrake.ca/iwd2020/
