The Nellie McClung Foundation 20th Anniversary Luncheon

 

The Nellie McClung Foundation presents the 20th Anniversary Luncheon, in support of the ‘Yes I Can’ Leadership initiative and scholarship program. The luncheon will take place on November 5, 2024, at the Fairmont Hotel. It promises to be a celebration recognizing the accomplishments of the past 20 years and looking forward as we raise funds to help empower girls and women in Manitoba to become leaders in their community.


The event will feature a captivating fireside conversation with The Honourable Janice C. Filmon, C.M., O.M., former Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba and founding Chair of the Nellie McClung Foundation, alongside Shelagh Rogers, O.C., an iconic figure in Canadian broadcasting. Together, they will delve into a reflective discussion on their distinguished careers and the transformative influences that have molded them into trailblazers.


The Nellie McClung Foundation, while honouring the legacy of past trailblazers, works to empower, inspire, and celebrate girl and women leaders in the community. The ’Yes I Can’ Leadership Program will be tailored to young girls to develop life skills that will help them to feel empowered and encourage leadership.





"Yes I Can" Leadership Initiative

Many studies have shown that young girls can lose a lot of confidence as they go through

their teen years. Because of this, we need to find ways to help girls see what their future

could look like and inspire them to believe 'Yes I Can'.


In recognition of the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl, the Nellie McClung

Foundation introduced the ’Yes I Can’ Leadership Initiative with the launch of a video series

called 'Yes I Can' featuring the stories of five dynamic young women aged 16-25.


The 'Yes I Can' leadership initiative is a complementary program to the Foundation’s

existing Trailblazer Scholarships, which present awards to self-identified female students

considering careers in the exciting fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and math

(STEAM), business or underrepresented trades.


With your support, all funds raised from the 20th Anniversary Luncheon will help to develop programs tailored to young girls and women to develop life skills that will help them feel empowered and encourage leadership. To accomplish this, we will also be featuring “Fund A Need” at the luncheon as part of our fundraising initiatives for the scholarship program.
