CIWA is incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support we received at our 40th Anniversary Gala – Global Women: Local Changemakers.
On September 29th, over 400 individuals came together in support of CIWA’s mission. We are inspired by the passion and commitment of our funders, donors, partners and supporters to empower immigrant and refugee women and girls to become our future changemakers.
We were honored to have the Lieutenant Governor, The Honourable Salma Lakhani, The Honourable Muhammad Yaseen, The Honourable Justice Michele Hollins, The Honourable Judge Sean Dunnigan, The Honourable Ron Ghitter, Her Worship Mayor Jyoti Gondek, Councillor Andre Chabot, and our keynote speaker, Dr. Verna Yiu.
We thank Linda Olsen for guiding the ceremony with her grace as well as our clients and CIWA alumna who shared their remarkable journeys with our followers.
