Description

NorQuest College and the 1000 Women: A Million Possibilities Movement invites you to join us.

Each of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence and can take bold pragmatic action. Now, more than ever, there is a strong call-to-action to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be more gender inclusive. Join us as we #PressForProgress!


Keynote Speaker

Rana Bokhari, B.A. (Criminology), B.A. (Psychology), J.D., Notary Public

Rana Bokhari is a graduate of the University of Manitoba Faculty of Law (Juris Doctor), and also has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology and Psychology. During her studies, she served as President of the Manitoba Law Students’ Association, made the Dean’s List for excellence in academics, and received The Carolynne Boivin Award for her research and support of women’s rights. In May of 2013, Rana was called to the Manitoba Bar.

She was elected as Leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party in 2013 and chose to pursue her new career in politics. As the first female minority leader and youngest leader of the Liberal Party in the history of Manitoba politics, she is an inspiration to all Manitobans to get involved and take leadership on issues that matter to everyone.

Although her career is demanding and diverse, Rana finds time to devote to her passions, including charity work. She is a committed believer in public service and involves herself in community affairs and organizations; in particular, she advocates for women’s rights and for mental health services being part of Manitoba Health Care coverage. In the past, she has participated in Winnipeg’s “CEO Sleep-out”, raising funds for the homeless. In addition, Rana travels country-wide, discussing “Women in Leadership” roles and is a strong supporter of the LGBTQ community.
