YWHISPER Gala 2020
YW Calgary proudly presents Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times investigative journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey as the keynote speakers of the 9th annual YWHISPER fundraising gala.
Jodi and Megan broke the news of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and abuse, and were named to TIME Magazine's 2018 "Most Influential People” list. They authored the bestselling book titled She Said, about the thrilling untold story of their investigation. Their story will also be adapted into a film by Plan B Entertainment, producers of Moonlight and The Departed.
Jodi and Megan speak with passion and commitment on power, gender equality, technology and political issues in our culture and share how we can help create a brighter future for society as a whole. Their thoughts and experiences on what is next for society is timely and powerful and we are thrilled to bring them to Calgary!
