Three remarkable women I know, (MountainMoms is just their alter ego), with support from Community Futures Howe Sound, Tourism Whistler, Origin Design + Communications & Mountain FM. have put together an evening in Whistler to celebrate International Day of the Girl.
I just met one of the guest speakers, Anita Naidu, and was gobsmacked by her energy, compassion and smarts.
For $10, enjoy a dynamic evening at the Rainbow Theatre, designed to celebrate the power, creative voices, and unique place of girls in this world. Their stories challenge us to step up, speak out, and make a change.
Tickets are $10 and available online:
This year’s speakers include:
- Canadian Astronaut Candidate, pro-mountain biker, and 2017 Google Impact Challenge winner, Anita Naidu,
- cyberbullying survivor and Founder of HOPE, Vivian Tsang, and
- teen transgender activist and one of Vancouver’s 50 Most Influential People, Tru Wilson.
This is going to be a night of stories that will challenge perspectives, expose hidden biases, and inspire you to speak up for positive change.
This event raises money for the Howe Sound Women’s Centre and One Horizon. Don’t miss out on the chance to bid on items from Lululemon, Glass Elevator, Whistler Golf Club, Whistler Blackcomb, and many more local partners.
Doors and silent auction table open at 7:30pm, talks start at 8pm sharp with MC Tara O’Doherty.
Can’t make it? Why not give a ticket as a gift to a girl or woman you know who could use a night of inspiration?
Props to Kevani MacDonald, Dee Raffo and Maja Ronneberger for being, and instigating, change-makers.
