Welcoming Reception for the University of Toronto Women in House program TONIGHT (March 4th 2013) at the Metropolitan Restaurant located at 700 Sussex Drive. The reception will start at 8pm and will provide a collegial and informal environment for our participating students to meet with female parliamentarians in our government. This reception is co-hosted with the Women of Press Gallery to celebrate the International Women’s week.

The evening will feature special remarks from Ms.Elizabeth May, Dr. Carolyn Bennett,  Ms. Charmaine Borg and Senator JoAnne Buth (TBC). You do not have to be hosting a student to attend this reception and you are welcome to drop by whenever you wish between 8pm and 9:30pm. No RSVP is necessary.

This year’s U of T Women in House program features 10 female students from the International Relations Program at Trinity College and 10 female students from the Peace, Conflict and Justice Program at the Munk School of Global Affairs. These participants were chosen through a competitive process based on their academic merits and future career aspirations. They will be sharing their experience live on social media platforms such as Twitter and facebook and will compile a report (to be published on our website) upon completion of the trip.
