This year's International Women's Day Dinner, held annually by the Vancouver District Labour Council, will feature Next Up alum Iglika Ivanova (NUBC 2007-08) as the guest speaker. The theme for the dinner is "Women & Precarity: The gender imbalance of low-waged, part-time, temporary, and insecure work."
Iglika is a feminist economist who researches and writes on key social and economic challenges facing British Columbia. As a senior economist and public interest researcher at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Iglika has authored a number of reports examining BC's rising income inequality, persistent poverty, trends in low wage work, and the importance of quality public programs and services for all.
The dinner is taking place on March 8th and is sold out, but you can contact the VDLC for updated information the day of the event.
