The Chairs Circle of past and present Chairpersons of the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women has become one of our favourite and most-anticipated annual traditions.DSC_3221

This year, we were delighted that the Chairs Circle included six past Chairs and our current Vice-Chair in a roundtable discussion of priorities from the Equality Report Card. Topics included violence, health, poverty, and justice: themes that are deeply interconnected. Their wisdom will be reflected in the report card when it is released in June.

For a little bit of added interest, Jane and Michelle practised new skills in graphic recording to create charts from the Chairs’ discussion.
