Well, Antigone Magazine’s CONNECT: A Woman’s Networking Lunch was a great success! Thank you to everyone who participated, helped, attended, sponsored and supported our event!

The event specifically featured UBC groups that support women and we aspired to involve young women and men in these causes. Our goal was to get young women involved in political and social issues that affect them. We feel that it is crucial to facilitate connections between young women and groups that work for women. Approximately 100 students attended the lunch and were able to make important connections with women’s organizations and politicians in attendance. These connections will continue to make a difference for UBC women when CONNECT: A Women’s Online Network is launched in March.
