At our live Zoom meeting on 13 October, our guest speaker was Rotary International Peace Fellow Hillary Jo Caldis.  In attendance were several OWR members as well as members of the Rotary E-Club of Southern Ontario & Western New York (SOWNY).  We enjoyed conversation and fellowship before Hilary's presentation "Addressing Gender Inequality from Within."
 
Hilary's Peace Fellowship was sponsored by the Rotary Club of Minneapolis (Club 9) in D5950 and is hosted in Japan by the Rotary Club of Yokohama - Konan.
 
About Hilary:
 
Hilary is the Founder and Executive Director of The Female Voice and current Rotary International Peace Fellow. As an undergraduate, Hilary earned her B.S. in Business Administration at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, co-majoring in Public-Nonprofit Management and International Business. Her senior thesis analyzed institutional structures, culture and leadership within the NGO sector in Northern India.
 
Following her graduation, she worked as a community organizer in her home town of Minneapolis, working to promote self-sufficiency in individuals and families from low-income backgrounds, including recently arrived immigrants. Over time, Hilary grew passionate about one overarching theme transcending all lines of work and cultural contexts—gender inequality. She began to link her formal administrative education, working experience in international and community development, and creative passions to tackle this issue. In January 2013, she founded TheFemaleVoice.org—a hybrid media production-social network platform designed for females worldwide to become self-actualized and empowered through regular acts of self-expression, interpersonal engagement and collective mobilization.
 
Through her work with The Female Voice, in 2014 Hilary was selected as a Rotary International Peace Fellow and began her Master’s studies as a co-major in Peace Studies and Media & Language at the International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan. Her research examines the role of New Media in the lives of females worldwide. Alongside her studies, Hilary continues to develop The Female Voice into a global platform for female expression, self-actualization, representation and mobilization.
