International Women’s Day Panel

The list of women include Natalie Very B, Catherine Oppedisano, Siobhan Stewart, Robin Lamarr and Jane Allison, and these women range in all different types of careers and expertise. The best part is that 100% of the ticket sales and merchandise sales will be going to a local Hamilton women’s shelter, Interval House! It is sure to be an amazing event so don’t miss out!


Soso Food Club | March 8, 11pm – Late | Tickets available at the door (Women are free)

Are you looking for a night of art, appreciation and good beats? Kuruza is a new Afrocentric event collective here in Toronto and their next event just so happens to land on IWD, so they are making it a big one. First, all women get in for free for the night and they have an amazing line up of DJs who are all women of colour. Head over to the hip Soso Food Club for some love and music.


Free Space | March 8, 7pm – 11pm | Tickets

Have an amazing girls-night-out with HER this Friday! The night is sure to be full of good music, fun activites, friends and LOTS of wine.

It is encouraged to bring a gently used accessory to donate to Dress for Success onsite!
