In celebration of International Day of the Girl, three exceptional women will share stories that celebrate the power, creative voices, and unique place of girls in this world. Their stories challenge us to step up, speak out, and make a change. 

This year’s speakers include Canadian Astronaut Candidate, pro-mountain biker, and 2017 Google Impact Challenge winner, Anita Naidu, cyberbullying survivor and Founder of HOPE, Vivian Tsang, and teen transgender activist and one of Vancouver’s 50 Most Influential People, Tru Wilson. This is going to be a night of stories that will challenge perspectives, expose hidden biases, and inspire you to speak up for positive change. Join the Facebook event page for more info on the speakers as we get ready for another amazing International Day of the Girl.

This event raises money for the Howe Sound Women’s Centre and One Horizon. Don’t miss out on the chance to bid on items from Lululemon, Glass Elevator, Whistler Golf Club, Whistler Blackcomb, and many more local partners.

Tickets are $10 and are available online: https://www.ticketzone.com/dayofthegirl

Doors and silent auction table open at 7:30pm, talks start at 8pm sharp with MC Tara O’Doherty.

Can’t make it? Why not give a ticket as a gift to a girl or woman you know who could use a night of inspiration?
