Make One Change 2013

Flowers On June 15, 2013, Make One Change: A Women’s Gathering provided a forum for raising the voices of women in Calgary. During this very inspiring and powerful day, women from all walks of life came together to learn, connect and make change.

A diversity of local issues impacting women in our region were discussed at Make One Change. Both presenters and individuals were asked to come up with concrete actions and next steps to address some of the issues and make change for women.
