This celebration will adopt the International 2019 theme of "Balance for Better" a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world, challenging our young women to have a better understanding of themselves and their experiences within today's society.
The morning session will start off with the Toronto Police Service 42 Division Unit Commander A/Superintendent Joanna Beaven-Desjardins welcoming our young women to the event. Various female mentors, TDSB representatives and community members will be in attendance. The afternoon session will consist of youth participating in an interactive open discussion.
