Media Action is excited to present Peggy Taillon as our next speaker for the Ask Women anything series! As the CEO for the Canadian Council for Social Development (CCSD), Peggy is a vocal companion of diversity and social equality. Through CSSD, she advocates for the needs of all community members especially the marginalized and the voiceless.
Peggy’s passion for addressing issues of health and well-being is reflected in her outstanding record of accomplishments. As the former Senior Vice-President of the Ottawa Hospital and as an advisor to the Minister of Health and Long-term Care and the Premier, she has led a number of initiatives and projects including Ontario’s Mental Health Implementation Task Force, the Ontario Regional Health Authorities and Local Health Information Networks (LHIN).
Peggy is also the proud founder of HERA Mission of Canada, an organization that supports women and children in western Kenya. Her work with HERA as well as her efforts to help reform adoption laws in Kenya while adopting her son Devlin, earned her CTV’s Amazing People’s Award in 2012. Her story, “The Love of a Child” was featured on CTV’s W5 in 2014 and viewed by over a million people. In April 2015, Peggy was awarded the Leading Women Building Communities Award.
We are thrilled to have Peggy share her story with us! Join us on May 27 at 6 p.m. at Artissimo Coffee n’ Tea (179 George St. Unit 102), Ottawa for a night of insight and inspiration with Peggy Taillon. Come one, come all!
