This Sunday is International Women’s Day. The theme for 2020 is “Each for Equal,” which is all about the concept of ‘collective individualism’ and how we each have a role to play in creating a more gender equitable world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So we decided to ask a member from each team here at YWCA Edmonton to share with us how they are working to make our community a more equitable place.
Read our team’s responses below and please join us at one of the many International Women’s Day celebrations happening across our city this month.
