What does a post-pandemic recovery for women look like?

Tune in to hear four speakers discuss the state of the she-covery, celebrate the political, economic, and social successes achieved by women, and delve into the work that is still left to be done.

Join YW Calgary and The Walrus on International Women’s Day to debate what a post-pandemic recovery looks like for women.
