Join us for the 10th anniversary YWHISPER, a virtually unmissable event, in partnership with The Walrus Talks at Home. Four special guests will share perspectives on Shifting the She-cession and what needs to be done for a more equitable future. Proceeds raised will support more than 5,500 vulnerable women and families served by YW Calgary each year.
This past year has been hard on everyone. It’s been even harder for vulnerable women and their families. That’s why this may be our most important YWHISPER yet. Though we won’t be able to meet in-person, we are committed to bringing the same YWHISPER energy, thought leadership and inspiring conversation to your living room.
Our keynote speakers will unpack the disproportionate challenges faced by women and gender-diverse people as a result of the pandemic, and the opportunities to push for real systemic change as we move toward recovery. Featuring talks with:
- Welcome by Jennifer Hollett, executive director, The Walrus
- Emcee Dave Kelly, award-winning host and interviewer
YWHISPER has raised more than 3 million dollars over the past nine years and your support helps women and their families live free from violence, find safety, economic stability and build a brighter future. We want to extend our deepest appreciation to our loyal guests, sponsors and donors for supporting YW Calgary.
