Tri-Town Council Event!

Join TTC and Middelton Health and Wellness for a screening of The Empowerment Project on Tuesday May 2, 2017  7pm-8:30pm at Howe Manning School (cafeteria) Middleton.  Recommended for Parents/Caregivers, Educators AND Girls & Boys in Grades 4 and up.  Spotlighting 8 positive and powerful women leaders across a variety of lifestyles and industries, this film inspires women and girls to push their boundaries and not be afraid to fail.  This film is a way to celebrate strong, inspiring women in  leadership roles all across the world. And, by telling their stories, we start to redefine women’s roles in the media, the workplace, and in the home.  Screening of The Empowerment Project will be followed by facilitated discussion with Dierdre Baker, Technology Integration Specialist at Howe Manning School and TTC staff.  More info and register here.
