On Tuesday, November 22, 2016 the YWCA Calgary proudly presented Monica Lewinsky as our keynote speaker at the 6th Annual YWhisper Fundraising Gala. Ms. Lewinsky speaks up and speaks out for victims of the ever-growing digital sphere, where abuse and harassment are accentuated and women are disproportionately affected.

We are thrilled to announce that we exceeded our fundraising goal, with more than $348,000 raised! Thank you for generously supportingYW. With your support, we are able to empower vulnerable women experiencing homelessness, poverty, domestic abuse and isolation to live strong and healthy lives. Thank you for raising your voice to help elevate the voices of vulnerable women in our city.
