Leave a comment

YWCA Canada was honoured in Zurich for our ground-breaking programmes that consistently and strategically further human rights for women and girls, including Girlspace , YW Leadership Miles , and Power of Being a Girl.   YWCA Canada continues to be at the forefront of leading social change within the country through building strategic partnerships and using social media.  YWCA Canada strives to help girls understand what personal and human rights mean in their everyday lives.  Accepting the award with intergenerational leadership, the recipients emphasised the power of influence and how one speech, one conference, or one person can serve to inspire.
