The SpeakUp

About this Event

Women Transforming Cities is proud to present the first of four workshops in the new SpeakUp series! Join them on June 15th for the first session of the The SpeakUp Series: Sharing how we learned to speak up. You are invited to the presentation and skill-building night with guest speakers Vaneeta Sandhu and Elena Starr.

Vaneeta is not your typical psychologist. She has boundless energy and hopes to use that superpower for good.  Vaneeta aims to advocate for mental health in millennials and works to have the voice of millennials heard.  Forever a student, she is also considered a teacher, and is lucky to be surrounded and supported by female mentors.

Elena is a mother, a school counsellor, a full-time student, and someone who still struggles with confidence in public speaking settings.

Hear Vaneeta’s and Elena’s stories and then get a chance to learn and practice some skills. It’s the time to speak out!
