Have you ever worked in a male dominated workplace or wondered what it's like for those who have? If so, then join us for our next discussion with our diverse group of panelists - from trade workers to corporate professionals - to discuss their lived experiences in male-dominated workplaces.

Good Life Community Bike Shop will be bringing their Gender Empowering Mechanics (GEM) to the Women's Centre. The purpose of GEM is to create a safer, welcoming space for learning, socializing and fixing bikes. Bicycling is a wonderful empowering activity, and being able to keep your own bike in good working order is even more confidence-enhancing. This will be a drop-in Q&A style workshop where volunteers will show you how to fix things on your bike yourself. This event is for all women identified people. No children in this workshop please.
