1000 Women Annual Luncheon

Edmonton Convention Centre
Wednesday, June 3, 2020

The 1000 Women movement has been transforming lives in our community for more than a decade. We are excited to launch a new campaign, as we continue the tradition of removing barriers for individuals who desire to improve their life through education.

For many vulnerable women struggling to change their lives, the barriers to their education are exhaustive. Together, we are making fundamental change to help these learners succeed, and your support is essential.

Take a step forward and be a part of 1000 Women by becoming a sponsor or purchasing a ticket today.
