The 2019 International Women’s Day event will honour His Highness the Aga Khan’s guidance in the public sphere as well as to the community, in the area of “Civil Society Leadership.” The aim is to illustrate how Canadian Ismaili women have made waves by initiating and building upon activities that reflect the social conscience of Islam.
The opening ceremonies will showcase a spoken word piece by Sheniz Janmohamed, poet, author, artist educator, and land artist. This year’s event will launch a panel discussion featuring Zabeen Hirji, Rumina Velshi, and Zaina Sovani, all of whom have exceptional leadership experience to share within their respective capacities, drawn from their significant work in institutions of Civil Society. This panel will be moderated by Anaar Dhanji, followed by a facilitated Question and Answer session. A celebratory reception will follow the official event ceremonies.
