Peterborough IWD 2021 #ChooseToChallenge

Event Details

Please join us in celebrating the Peterborough International Women’s Day 2021 Virtual Event on Monday, March 8, 2021 @ 6:30-8:30 PM on Zoom

Due to anticipated Covid-19 restrictions, we have organized a virtually inspiring and interactive IWD event with opportunities to learn from our guest speakers and each other. We’ll explore gender equity – and its connection to the Sustainable Development Goals, the intersection of sexism and racism, and how we take care of ourselves and each other during turbulent times. Please find program details below.
Important Note: Everyone is welcomed into this event. For the break out discussions groups only, we are requesting male-identifying folx to please check the box in the registration to participate in a dedicated space exploring how men can support gender equality led by Delores Lalonde (Niijkiwendidaa Peterborough) and the KSAC MENding Program.
*Please bring into the event a poster or symbol of what you are choosing to challenge this year and we’ll take a few minutes to share these virtually.*
