A great experience today. Meeting the Premier of Nova Scotia, The Honourable Stephen McNeil and Minister for the Status of Women, The Honourable Kelly Regan who were recognizing the work of women leaders in our community on the eve of International Women's Day, March 8, 2018.

Members of Diverse Voices for Change Halifax visited Province House today, March 7, to be recognized for their work to increase the number of women from diverse communities who are engaged in local government decision-making.
