The Calgary Women’s Foundation held a fundraiser breakfast October 26, 2017.
The focus of breakfast was around gender equality and how it’s still an issue in the workforce.
Keynote speaker, Tina Tchen, thinks that it’s still important to keep talking about gender equality in our families and communities.
Tchen says we want to dispel the notion that this is an old issue that has yet to be solved.
She shared her experiences working for eight years in the Obama Administration and spoke about the rewarding experiences she gained.
The Calgary Women’s Foundation have invested in over 1,400 community programs that help women and girls move out of violence and poverty.
