The Power Lunch Speaker Series

YWCA Edmonton proudly launched The Power Lunch Speaker Series in 2020. These powerful conversations spotlighting influential Canadian women have been both inspiring and empowering for all those in attendance. These sessions are an opportunity for us all to learn from the perspectives and experiences of others as we work towards developing a greater understanding of social issues in our community today.

Searching for Izena: 100 Years of Female Leadership at City Hall

Monday, February 1 – noon - 1 pm

This panel discussion will be a deep dive into the political highs and lows of the last century, and a look ahead at the barriers that still need to be broken in our city – even in 2021. Join us for this first conversation in our Searching for Izena Power Lunch series. Moderated by YWCA Edmonton CEO Katherine O’Neill featuring panelists Rajah Maggay of Parity YEG, current City Councillor Sarah Hamilton, and Olivia Butti, Edmonton’s oldest surviving female Councillor.
