Melanie Mark, YWCA Metro Vancouver Culture Shift project lead Lori Boland, “The Fat Yogini” Lisa Papez, and musician & CBC Searchlight Competition winner Desiree Dawson.

October 11 marks International Day of the Girl Child. G Day Founder Madeleine Shaw and other speakers can talk about a wide range of topics that will be discussed at G Day.
G Day began in the spring of 2014 with over 500 girls and their champions attending both 2014 events in Vancouver. In 2015, G Day was met again with incredible community support and attendance in Vancouver, Toronto, and Victoria, which also produced G Day in 2016. G Day is produced by the charity United Girls of the World Society, which anticipates Toronto, Whitehorse, and Calgary as future host cities.
