A big International Women’s Day THANK YOU to everyone who came out to celebrate together March 8th! We were blown away by how many people came to listen, learn, and be entertained as we continue to strive for gender equality. We have such a deep pool of talent, heart, and commitment on PEI – it is beautiful.

Wela’lioq to all our wonderful sponsors and supporters of International Women’s Day 2023.

Appreciation to our amazing IWD volunteers: Hsiao-Yu Liu, Barb McDowall, Garima Mishra, Jan Devine, Katie Baker, Bella Jay and Jettlyn Cash, and Donna Dingwell.

Organizational support in the form of staff time and skills from Women’s Network PEI (AinZ Kendrick, Megan Dorrell and Jill Olscamp); Cooper Institute (Marie Burge and Ann Wheatley); and PEI Coalition for Women in Government (Sweta Daboo, Kari Kruse and Sarah Oultram).

Financial support is critical and PEI unions are faithful and generous contributors: UPSE, PSAC, CUPE, and the Federation of Labour. Also, we thank the Interministerial Women’s Secretariat team for their contribution.
