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 in our little province. Also – THANK YOU to all of our talented speakers and performers. We have such a deep pool of talent, heart, and commitment on PEI – it is beautiful.

Appreciation to our amazing IWD volunteers: Hsiao-Yu Liu, Barb McDowall, Inverness Kaine, Amy C and Donna Dingwell. Organizational support in the form of staff time and skills from Women’s Network PEI (Megan Dorrell); Cooper Institute (Ann Wheatley); and PEI United Way (AinZ Kendrick).

Wela’lioq to all our wonderful sponsors and supporters of International Women’s Day 2024. 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.

And a shout out to Cured Creations who did the catering for the event – the food was just as tasty as it was beautiful! We are also giving a shout out to Charlottetown Library Learning Centre for being such a great venue and accommodating our requests!
