INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2021
This year has been a challenging one for all of us in so many different ways.
It's not surprising that the theme for International Women's day 2021,
is Choose to Challenge.
For all of us here at Women of Change, we too have found it a bit of a challenge, trying to keep with the spirit of our annual event, and make this year, just as memorable as in the past. So, for 2021, we have stepped outside of our comfort zone, and mustered up the courage to do things differently.
We have accepted the challenge, and began with our Shop Local campaign. The intention behind Shop Local, is to support businesses at the grassroots level, who have been affected by the pandemic. These truly courageous women have stuck with it, and with your support, continue to survive. Our goal, moving forward is to promote as many professional and service industries run by women, throughout the duration of the pandemic.
This year, the Canadian Women's Foundation is urging women "to take actions and make moves for gender justice". And although the focus is more corporate, than at the grassroots level, there is something to be said about stepping outside your comfort zone, to learn about the world outside your own. You may find a connection.
For this year’s International Women’s Day event, Women of Change has brought to you the local community, and an inspiring talk by a woman who teaches us how to be

You don’t believe in taking a Band-Aid approach to solving problems and neither do we. That’s why the Canadian Women’s Foundation focuses on the most critical challenges facing women and girls, and invests in the most effective solutions for long-term change.
With your support, we approach holistically—from women and girls in communities across the country right up to the federal government level. It takes strong community organizations and dedicated service providers to deliver programs that change lives. Yet, these organizations often operate on shoestring budgets with few resources.
With your support, the Canadian Women’s Foundation provides organizations with one to five years of funding, which helps to retain staff, evaluate programs, and improve long-term outcomes.We also bring grantee organizations and sector experts together to network, discuss emerging issues, coordinate services, and work together toward long-term solutions.
JOIN THE TIRELESS. The road to gender equality has been long, but every step forward comes from the tireless efforts of supporters like you. Together, The Tireless will achieve gender equality. And we won’t rest until all of Canada is with us. Donate now at JoinTheTireless.ca.
