TORONTO, Last week, I was excited to attend the 2018 Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society. The two day event took place in Toronto at the Fairmont Royal York hotel. The forum is an annual conference held in cities around the world, which aims to highlight women’s voices and opinions on key economic, social, and political issues. This year’s theme was Bridging the gap: A call to the G7 for inclusive progress. I would like to thank the Nova Scotia Advisory Council on the Status of Women for supporting my participation in the forum.
