International Women's Day
The Town of Collingwood will honour International Women's Day by hosting a virtual panel discussion and social on Monday, March 8, 2021 | 12:00 PM.
All are welcome to register for this free Zoom event featuring seven extraordinary individuals who will share their experiences and facilitate an open discussion exploring what it means to #ChooseToChallenge gender bias and inequity.
Because the registration is free this year, we will be introducing a fun, new, component that will raise funds for My Friend's House Collingwood and enhance the IWD experience. Registrants will have the opportunity to purchase an experience box, curated by "the gals" of Galentine's Collingwood!
The box will contain treats and products from local female-led businesses and can be enjoyed throughout the IWD panel, social, and beyond. A portion of the proceeds from each box sold will directly benefit My Friend's House. Donations will be matched by the Town of Collingwood.
Not able to attend but still wish to purchase an IWD Experience Box in support of My Friend's House?
Purchase link coming soon!
A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day! We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. From challenge comes change, so let's all choose to challenge.
If your business or organization would like to recognize and honour women alongside us, please consider one of the sponsorship opportunities described here.
