hogg_photo_2014What are you most excited for at A Bold Vision: Women’s Leadership Conference?

This is a ‘once in a lifetime’ event for any woman especially for a woman in political office. As an elected official for the past 23 years; as one of the few women in municipal politics, I am very honoured to have been invited to attend A BOLD VISION. I think of my Granddaughters and hope that when they are older, they will follow-up on this momentous occasion. I hope that they will marvel at how dynamic, creative, inclusive, equitable, insightful, and meaningful were the contributions of Canadian women leaders. I hope that they will find their own place and voice in building the history of our great country.

Bold Visions come in all sizes – Tell us about your bold vision…

My Bold Vision would encourage all girls and women to participate in the decisions which inform and direct their lives. I want all girls and women to know that they have choice and a responsibility to themselves – to make decisions and take responsibility for their actions. I want girls and women to know that at any age, or time in their life, they have opportunities for positive change and that as they change themselves, they create the world that they choose to live in. In that way, all girls and women will come to respect themselves and each other as leaders.
