Power of a Girl Conference
The Power of a Girl Conference was held on Friday, March 24th at the Catholic Education Centre and welcomed groups of female students from TCDSB schools across the Board.
This year's conference was centered around the theme of this year's International Women's Day Celebration (Be Bold For Change) and was an opportunity for girls to learn stories and experiences from girls/ women of power through keynote addresses from women in education and the community, including TCDSB Director of Education Angela Gauthier and Karlyn Percil (HER STORY).
Following the keynote address, students broke out into workshops that focused on body image, mental wellness, bullying and the importance of friendships. After the workshops, the girls participated in a visual art exercise that coincided with an artistic expression presentation titled Power of a Girl.
