Celebrate International Women’s Day at MARPAC – Noon Walk for Wellness

To commemorate the 2016 International Women’s Day (IWD) under the theme of Women Moving Forward, MARPAC and the Defence Women’s Advisory Organization (DWAO) will be hosting events on March 7 and 8.

A 5 kilometre “Noon Walk for Wellness” is planned for Monday, March 7. The walk will leave at noon from the front of the Pacific Fleet Club building to Saxe Point Park and back. Everyone is welcome to join this stroll in our neighbourhood. Bring along your co-workers, friends and family, and wear bright colours.

On March 8, internationally acclaimed financial advisor HCol Diane McCurdy will deliver a keynote speech, followed by a panel discussion. This event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at the conference room at the Chief and Petty Officers’ Mess.

HCol McCurdy will bring insight, experience and enthusiasm to the vital challenge of creating and managing your personal financial plan. She is author of the best-selling financial guide “How Much is Enough?” and is a frequent contributor to national print and broadcast media.

HCol McCurdy became involved with the Canadian Armed Forces following a helicopter crash in August 2010 when she was rescued by 442 Squadron. This life event fostered her advocacy for the military community.

The keynote will be followed by a one hour panel discussion from 11 a.m. to noon. Several Formation members will join HCol McCurdy on the panel to share their achievements and experiences on various topics that include the field of leadership, work and life balance, life and family, and more. All Defence Team members are invited to join.

Supervisor approval is required to attend these events. Due to limited seating for the March 8 event, please RSVP to Emily Zhong at Emily.Zhong@forces.gc.ca or 363-1082.
