Can you believe we are officially one year into the pandemic? While we won't exactly be celebrating this anniversary, it's a good opportunity to reflect on the past twelve months and check in with each other. With many struggling from pandemic fatigue, we want to extend a heartfelt, virtual hug to our community and remind you that we're here for you.
YW Childcare is still open with full-time, part-time and drop-in spaces. Our amazing team is diligently following Alberta Health Services guidelines with limited class sizes, health screenings upon entry, and increased sanitizing schedules.
Following the provincial government's easing of restrictions, we're excited to announce that YW Fitness will reopen on Wednesday, March 10th for low-intensity, pre-booked workout sessions only. For more details on hours of operation, bookings, equipment availability and usage guidelines, contact Dana at firstname.lastname@example.org
And because we all need a little extra help at times, remember that YW Counselling services are still operating safely, and are open to anyone and everyone!
International Women’s Day at YW
Even in these challenging times, we're finding things to celebrate and look forward to. Today marks International Women's Day—a day to recognize the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, both across the globe and locally. Through our frontline work, we are privileged to witness first-hand the strength and resiliency of thousands of women. Who are some inspiring women and girls in your life? How do you #ChooseToChallenge the status quo? Come join the conversation on Twitter!
10th Annual YWHISPER Gala
Speaking of inspiring women, our 10th annual YWHISPER Gala will host an incredible roster of keynote speakers, thanks to our partnership with The Walrus. We invite you to join us on March 11 as we discuss the role of women and gender-diverse people in our economic recovery, unpack the challenges they face, and explore the opportunities that lie ahead for systemic change.

Suffice to say, the past year has been full of challenges. So let's celebrate the small victories, and support one another through the challenges. At the risk of sounding cliché, we truly WILL get through this together!
