About this Event

#EachforEqual, the theme for the 2020 International Women's Day. This truly showcases what women have been striving for since the early 1900's when International Women's Day began, and daily, women in the workplace or on the entrepreneurship journey, showcase how we can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions in order to achieve this coveted goal.

Bruce County is proud to once again partner with the Women's House Serving Bruce & Grey. Their commitment to social change through education and advocacy is an immense help to women struggling in our area.

A little about our speaker this year:

Jamie McMillan is an advocate for equaling the playing field and opening minds to the possibilities of non-traditional gender employment opportunities. Jamie is a Journeyman Ironworker / Boilermaker and founder of KickAss Careers. She became an ironworker in 2002 when women only represented 2% of the workforce across Canada and the United States. She thoroughly understands the stereotypes and struggles that women face in male-dominated occupations, and she is determined to equal the playing field.

Her mission: Engage, Educate and Encourage youth to consider careers in skilled trades and technology through school and community outreach.

Over the years Jamie has received the Top 20 Under 40 Award for making an impact in the metal trades, the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program Champion Award and District School Board of Niagara Technology Education Partnership Award for her commitment to youth in schools across the province of Ontario and most recently the Hamilton YWCA Women of Distinction Award for being a trailblazer excelling in her field promoting leadership and equal advancement opportunities.

Join us on March 3rd as we celebrate International Women's Day with Jamie and the Women's House Servings Bruce Grey.
