In honour of this special day, IN Magazine is highlighting inspiring women leading non-profit organizations that support diverse 2SLGBTQI+ communities in Canada, like SKETCH’s very own Executive Director, Paulina O’Kieffe-Anthony! As well as Debbie Owusu-Akyeeah, Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Gender & Sexual Diversity; Helen Kennedy, Executive Director of Egale Canada; Maura Lawless, Executive Director of The 519; and Raegan Swanson, Executive Director of The ArQuives.

Women who make a difference in their communities deserve to be recognized and celebrated!

This is true every day, but it is especially true on International Women’s Day. This global day celebrates and recognizes the social, economic, cultural and political contributions of women and girls around the world while raising awareness about the efforts being made to achieve gender equality.
