YW Calgary is pleased to announce the guest speakers for the 9th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala are Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey.
In 2017, these New York Times journalists and best-selling authors broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse towards women. Their book, “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement,” includes a firsthand account of their investigation into the Weinstein case and how this was instrumental in the shaping of the #MeToo movement.
We are all part of what comes next in the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement.
It takes all of us. We all have a role in speaking up and making changes in our workplaces, homes and communities that remove barriers and support, empower and provide women with different opportunities. Doing nothing perpetuates a broken system that continues to build barriers for women and their families.
It’s time for a change! We need powerful voices of women and men to change cultural norms that continue to create barriers for women in the workplace and beyond.
Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, at the 9th annual YWHISPER Fundraising Gala at the TELUS Convention Centre. Proceeds raised will support women and families at YW to thrive, while advocating for women’s safety, social and economic rights.
