A conversation with the former U.S. First Lady

Vancity is the presenting sponsor for the upcoming Greater Vancouver Board of Trade event featuring a conversation with the former U.S. First Lady, who has been an influential voice for advancing the societal well-being of women and girls. The launch of her initiative Let Girls Learn, provides adolescent girls around the world, even those in areas of conflict and crisis, the opportunity to pursue and complete their education.

This high-profile event is an opportunity to highlight Vancity’s work as a leader in advocating for gender equality, challenging unconscious bias, and encouraging diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

We’re also proud that our CEO Tamara Vrooman will be moderating the conversation with Michelle Obama.

Vancity’s involvement 

The former First Lady’s dedication to advancing women and girls aligns with Vancity’s commitment to social justice, poverty reduction, and embracing diversity within our communities. 

Vancity has been a long-time supporter of The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and their work with the Women’s Leadership Circle—an inclusive program that promotes diversity in the leadership of our local communities and organizations.

In 2016, our CEO Tamara Vrooman signed Minerva’s gender diversity pledge, committing resources to change the face of leadership in our organization.

In addition to giving members an opportunity to attend this sold-out event, we’ll also be providing tickets to our community partners and the members of the community they serve.
