The virtual Alexa McDonough Lecture

This special event has already taken place.

Lecturer: Peggy Nash

Topic: Women Leaders Are Needed Now More Than Ever!

We are thrilled to be hosting an annual nationwide lecture series that focuses on advancing social democracy today. We need thought provoking discussions and fresh ideas that prioritize the majority of people's needs rather than the elite and well connected.

Our next event takes place at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, NS, on Wednesday September 20th at 6pm ADT. This event is open to invited guests to attend either in-person or virtually.

This lecture by author and former Member of Parliament Peggy Nash, will focus on Women in Leadership and how we use our voices to build a better world. As Peggy notes “Taking on the responsibility of leadership can offer others a chance to act on their values and make change on the issues they care about. Women leaders are needed now more than ever.” RSVP to learn more.

Peggy Nash is the author of Women Winning Office: An Activist’s Guide to Getting Elected, encouraging those who are often excluded to consider running for office, work she continues as the co-instructor of the Toronto Metropolitan University Women in the House Program. Nash is a former Member of Parliament holding official portfolios in finance and industry and was a federal NDP leadership candidate. A former senior negotiator with CAW (now UNIFOR) in the automobile, airline and service sectors, Nash also pioneered women’s leadership training and equity policies.
