CWY Youth Matters LIVE! Gender inclusivity through an indigenous lens


Join us in an hour-long live-stream event on March 8, International Women’s Day, where we’ll be discussing gender inclusivity through an indigenous lens!

March 8 is a date well-known around the world as International Women’s Day. It is a day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women globally. This year there is a strong call to action to press forward and progress gender parity.

Our panel consists of young indigenous women leaders across Canada and our goal is to raise awareness of the status of young women in our Indigenous communities and to motivate others to follow in the footsteps of the leaders we will showcase.

Moderator: Dr. Paulette Tremblay, CEO, Assembly of First Nations


Maatalii Okalik, Indspire Award recipient

Stephanie McMahon, Winner of the 2017 Outstanding Indigenous Alumni Award

Brittany Tremblay, Métis medical student at the University of Ottawa
