In partnership with the City of Cambridge, YWCA Cambridge is hosting its third annual Equal Are We Conference on Friday, October 26, 2018. Save the date!

What is it?

Equal Are We is a full-day, dynamic conference with workshops, speakers, and some fun and engaging surprises aimed at making you question: what can do to help make my community more equal, tolerant and safe? What contributions can I make to change the spaces where I live: work, home, school, and beyond? Breaking barriers and buiding community: it starts with you.

The day will be fast-moving, cover a range of topics, and include a ton of great voices. We can't wait to see you there.

Why do we need it and who is it for?

YWCA Cambridge has a rich history as a trusted leader and partner working for an equal and tolerant community. As such, we are always working to evolve our programs and services to better meet the needs of those we serve, and advocating for these opportunities where they don’t currently exist. We believe that in order to create meaningful and sustainable change, we must involve every member of the community and ask them, as experts in their own spaces: how can we support your vision to lead for change?

This conference is for EVERYONE (high school youth and adults) who share our vision for a community where everyone’s voice is equal. 

Session topics from last year's conference include:

  • Equitable Reporting: A discussion on gender in the media
  • Indigenous Masculinities
  • Response to Gendered Violence on Campus (UWaterloo, Laurier, and Conestoga College)
  • WRDSB: Kognito Program
  • Transgender Experience in the Workplace
  • Gay Straight Alliances in Schools

This sounds great! How can I attend?

Tickets for the public go on sale early September. Cost per ticket is $25 and include lunch. A set number of youth spaces have been sponsored by the City of Cambridge, and will be coordinated for students grade 9 - 12 through Cambridge high schools. For more information contact Kim Decker. To stay up to date, join our mailing list!
