This event will feature 3 guest speakers who have all dedicated part of their work to supporting and empowering women in Durham Region. Their discussion will explore the struggles they have overcome and accomplishments they have achieved to date.

This event will also showcase a spoken word artist that will close the event with her powerful words about feminism, empowerment and women’s rights.

Finally, the event will have entertainment stations, such as face painting, hand massages, and an art station where attendees will be encouraged to create art that showcases what the word equality means to them.

In the spirit of this year’s IWD theme, “I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”, the WCDR hopes to highlight some powerful women working in Durham Region and celebrate women’s accomplishments. Additionally, some local social service agencies will have tables set up around the room so that attendees can learn about some of the resources and supports available to women in Durham Region.
