Service Award Presented to Yvonne Deagle

Yvonne Deagle, Chairperson of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women completed her maximum five-year term in mid-September. Staff celebrated Yvonne at lunch and presented her with a service award that recognized her contributions to Council’s work throughout her term as Council member, Vice-Chairperson, and Chairperson. We will miss her very much ~ on behalf of the current Council members and all the members who shared the Council table with Yvonne during her term.

Service Award – The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women thanks Yvonne Deagle

Yvonne Deagle of Miminegash has served on the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women since 2014, as Vice-Chairperson from 2016 to 2018 and as Chairperson from January 2018 to September 2019. Yvonne contributed her special perspective as a West Prince Acadian and Francophone educator, caregiver, and advocate. Yvonne offered particular heart for issues of poverty: income contributes to all other issues that affect the status of women. Yvonne was a consistent support to Council staff. She hosted the 2018 Montreal Massacre Memorial Service with conscientious dedication to eliminating violence against women. She contributed to the 2015 Equality Report Card and led the 2018 Equality Report Card projects to assess government progress towards gender equality goals.

Merci, Yvonne, for your faithful, energetic work as a leader of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women to advance the status of women in PEI.
