Women Talk Calgary South
To create a space where ordinary women can share their extraordinary stories, ideas and experiences.
By sharing their stories women will make their communities stronger.
WOMEN TALK was founded by the amazing Brigitte Lessard-Deyell, a former female hockey player, LGBT activist, and published author. She has made groundbreaking advances in the female communities by sharing her personal story of what it was like to be a female hockey player and coming out in this judgmental world. She is married to the great radio personality here in Calgary, Sue Deyell. Together they are a formidable team sharing what its like to be a normal couple, raising two adorable children together and living an extraordinary life.
"WOMEN TALK are events where ordinary women present and share their inspiring stories, thoughts, ideas and experiences, TED TALK style. You’ll laugh, you’ll learn and you’ll be entertained by amazing WOMEN TALKers! The evening will be fast-paced with each presenter speaking for 15-20 minutes, TED TALK style. We are ordinary women, sharing extraordinary stories!" - Brigitte
