11:30 a.m. Social; 12 Noon Luncheon and Speaker
Speaker: Anne Giardini
Chancellor of Simon Fraser University
In 1929, five Canadian women, known as the Famous Five, advocated successfully to have women declared persons. We celebrate them each October on Persons Day. Thanks to them, women today can be appointed as judges or to the Senate, are made Presidents and
Chancellors of our universities and are welcomed to sit at board room tables of our corporations, organizations and non-profits.
One such present-day woman is Anne Giardini, appointed as Chancellor of SFU in June 2014.
