The 11th anniversary YWHISPER event will return bigger and better than ever on International Women’s Day – March 8, 2023. The past few years have been hard on everyone. It’s been even harder for vulnerable women and their families. That’s why this will be our most important YWHISPER yet, and an event you don’t want to miss!
We’d like to thank you those who joined us for the 10th anniversary YWHISPER, a virtually unmissable event, in partnership with The Walrus Talks at Home. Four special guest speakers shared their perspectives on Shifting the She-cession and what needs to be done for a more equitable future. Armine Yalnizyan, Sally Armstrong, Sheila North and Ann Hui unpacked the disproportionate challenges faced by women and gender-diverse people as a result of the pandemic and discussed the opportunities to push for real systemic change as we move toward recovery. Proceeds raised through this important evening supported more than 5,500 vulnerable women and families served by YW Calgary last year.
YWHISPER has raised more than 3.5 million dollars over the past ten 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 and hope to see you at the 2023 event!
