International Women’s Day 8 March 2018: Join us!


Posted on Thursday, March 1, 2018

The Petawawa Diversity and Employment Equity Advisory Group is pleased to invite you to our International Women’s Day Event.

International Women’s Day celebrates the progress made towards equality for women and is celebrated internationally on 8 March. It reflects on the challenges and barriers that remain and considers future steps to achieving equality for all women in all aspects of their lives. It commemorates the hard work and dedication of women around the world who are at the forefront of advancing women’s issues.

The International Women’s Day theme this year is #PressforProgress. There is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity, and across the world there are women making positive gains every day.

Chief Warrant Officer Sophie Desjardins, the Canadian Armed Forces Defence Ethics Program Chief Warrant Officer will be our inspiring guest speaker at the Reichwald Warrant Officers and Sergeants Mess at Garrison Petawawa on 8 March 2018 from 1300 – 1500hrs. All are welcome!
