Every International Women’s Day in the 905, Paddy Torsney organizes and host an IWD Breakfast Event. The event focuses on the highlights and accomplishments of women of note in the region. This year marks a significant milestone of 25 years. We wanted to talk about this accomplishment, and the importance of International Women’s Day for our society. As well as the impact adding more women to leadership roles can have for our society.
Paddy is a long time friend of both Roland and Joel, she is a former Member of Parliament for Burlington, and is currently the Ambassador of the Interparliamentary Union to the United Nations in New York City. She splits her time between the 905 and the Big Apple, and we are grateful for her to take time from her schedule to talk with us.
