International Women's Day

Description: LAMP Community Health Centre hosted an International Women’s Day fundraiser lunch at the Mimico Cruising Club on Wednesday, March 8. The keynote speaker was Mary O’Connell, a CBC award-winning documentary producer of “Ideas”. With 25+ years of documentary-making experience at the CBC, Ms. O’Connell has tackled such subjects including "Rethinking Depression: A Journey Through the Corporatization of Mental Illness.” Her award-winning “High Culture” took home the gold at the New York Festivals International Program Awards in 2016. These prestigious awards are given to the best radio programs and producers in the world. Mary’s “The Secret Lives of Children” earned her a New York Festivals Radio Awards bronze trophy in 2015. The theme for IWD this year was "Be Bold for Change" – a maxim that Mary definitely embodies. Mary was an interesting, thought-provoking speaker who inspired all in attendance!
