International Women's Day Guelph-Wellington and Women of Distinction
For our 9th year, the IWD Guelph-Wellington (IWDGW) partners are excited to honour women of all ages and stages at our annual celebration of International Women’s Day.
2021 brings some exciting changes for IWD Guelph-Wellington. For the first time, IWDGW is taking the celebration online! We are also pleased to announce that this year we have partnered with Women of Distinction, a longstanding local event honouring remarkable women in our community.
This year’s virtual IWDGW will feature a celebration of the 2021 Women of Distinction honorees, an online marketplace promoting women entrepreneurs and a keynote address from our guest speaker Ms. Kate Beirness, sportscaster and Canadian television host.
As has been our practice in previous years, proceeds from this event go toward supporting women in Guelph-Wellington. We are pleased to announce proceeds will be directed to the YMCA of Three Rivers Women’s programming: Safe Sisters, Teenage Parent’s Program (TAPPS) & Encore.
