WEST presents IWD’s Virtual Gala
March 8 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 was #ChooseToChallenge “A challenged world is an alert world and, from challenge comes change.” To acknowledge the vital role that we can all play in creating change, Community Leaders of all ages in Windsor-Essex contributed to WEST’s #ChooseToChallenge Campaign to remind us that our voices and actions have the ability to make the impossible…possible.
