Women Working Together showcase

We are hosting an event at Hycroft this Thursday that we wanted to invite the DeafBC community to. We have very recently enlisted the help of an interpreter and have reserved 10 tickets for our upcoming Women Working Together showcase and celebration. More information can be found on our website here: https://www.uwcvancouver.ca/event/women-working-together-2018/


The tickets we have reserved are being offered at our Early Bird rate of $40 plus tax to make this event as accessible as possible. I understand that this is very late notice however if there is anyone who would be interested in attending we would love to have them join. RSVP’s can be made to myself directly via email atmembership@uwcvancouver.ca and I am more than happy to assist with any additional questions.
