Open Education Week: UnCommon Women Panel

← Back to list of events
In the 2014 Tutu Lecture “Women in Peace” Mary Robinson, President of Ireland, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights spoke to the importance of gender equality of the decision-makers in the room. And what that the value of amplifying the voice of women leaders brings more to the room and the decisions – Her practical recommendation was simple: “that women in positions of authority walk into a room that is dominated by men should ask 'What’s wrong with this room?'” Kelsey Merkley started UnCommon Women because she saw a gap between the women in senior operating roles and the men in “Thought Leader” roles. In other words, the women were getting s*** done. Kelsey wanted to celebrate and amplify the many strong brilliant and busy women of the commons. Join Kelsey Merkley as she interviews and facilitates a conversation with a few of the UnCommon Women (Kory Wilson, Surita Jhangiani, Gwen Bird, and Rosie Redfield) in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. This is a kick off event for Open Education week and we hope you join us!
