Toronto-St. Paul’s 2018 International Women’s Day Summit

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a moment to take stock of the incredible progress women have made, but also to look ahead to the work that still needs to be done to achieve true equality. This is what we discussed at the Toronto-St. Paul’s International Women’s Day Summit for Young Women Leaders last Friday at North Toronto Collegiate Institute. In honour of IWD, young women from eleven different high schools in the area came together to connect with five inspirational, professional women from a variety of different fields. It was a fabulous morning and everyone – students, teachers, and speakers – left more ‘deputized’ to lift up women everywhere.

Thank you to our speakers, Dr. Sylvia Bashevkin, Deputy Minister Deborah Richardson-Goulais, TPS Constable Monica Rutledge, Tabatha Southey, and Shelley Laskin. A huge thanks to North Toronto Collegiate Institute for hosting us. Already looking forward to next year!
