Let's create a gender equal world. We're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. Challenge stereotypes, broaden perceptions, change situations. An equal world is an enabled world. Let's all be #EachforEqual.
The Town of Collingwood formally recognized and celebrated International Women's Day in 2019 with a Keynote Speaking Engagement & Panel Discussion, a Munch & Mingle, and a Flag Raising & Proclamation Ceremony.
