HeForShe Tour a success at CUE!

Posted on: Sep 20, 2019

Thank you to everyone who made it out to the HeForShe #GetFreeTour yesterday!

It was a beautiful morning to host the UN Women’s HeForShe tour, powered by DeBeers Group, as the 3rd and only Edmonton stop on the Canadian #GetFreeTour.  There was great support for the friendly soccer practice between FC Edmonton and our very own Thunder Athletics women’s soccer team.

The panel discussion with the UN’s Edward Wegeni, City Councillor Bev Esslinger, DeBeers Group’s Pamela Ellemers, and CUE student Hannah Ludlage, was engaging and thought-provoking on how we can working together in moving #genderequality forward.

Thank you again to all of the speakers, including MLA Janis Irwin and our CUE Athletes, Gabby Bayne and Megan Algeo, all of our volunteers, and our audience for making this a successful event! 

Keep the conversation going! Be an advocate for change, and stand together as equal partners in the achievement of gender equality around the world.

Be the change and commit to gender equality.
