The MMC celebrates women’s every day — yet extraordinary — achievements with our annual Because Mothers Matter Awards. We recognize both prominent Canadian women as well as a number of outstanding mothers from the HIPPY program. These women all show a commitment to their communities and serve as models for the unique role women play in leading social change.
Because Mothers Matter Awards 2021 will take place on Zoom, on May 5th, 2021 from 5 to 6:30 pm PDT.
At this year’s event Dr. Theresa Tam and Dr. Cindy Blackstock will receive the Because Mothers Matter Award for their noteworthy professional accomplishments while giving back to their community. Two HIPPY mothers with extraordinary stories, Nusrat Awan and Jessica Seegerts, will also be honoured. Carol Slater will be the first recipient of the Trailblazer Award.
During the event, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau and Dr. Sharon Johnson will present the premiere of the Mothering During COVID-19 discussion series video featuring HIPPY mothers. The video will provide a unique insight into the challenges and resilience of mothering in the global pandemic.
This event and our programs are made possible through the generous support of our partners and donors. We kindly ask that you support this event through the purchase of a private virtual room for you and your guests, or an individual ticket.
