November 27th, 5:30pm at the Wave

The Women's Issues Network has another exciting event coming up on November 27th that we think the Women's Studies students would be interested in. We are hosting a Connections Dinner focused on women in leadership, which includes a Q & A panel with Andrea Horwath, Carolyn Bennett and Joni Baechler, our political guests. We have also invited female professors from a variety of faculties/departments on campus, as well as business and community leaders from London. Tickets can now be purchased for $5 at Western Connections. https://www.facebook.com/events/760508330683182/?fref=ts
