"Politics Hurts but it Matters"

Maryam Monsef is the Founder and CEO of ONWARD. She is a globally recognized feminist, leader, and changemaker. This Afghan-Canadian activist comes from a long line of strong and resilient women. Against all odds, she escaped war and survived poverty and displacement. She rose from refugee, to community organizer, to Cabinet Minister where she drove social and economic justice files for the Government of Canada at home and abroad.

Maryam has led public policy files at the highest levels. In 2018 and 2019, she was recognized by Apolitical, along with Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Michelle Obama and Malala, as one of the Top 20 global influencers on gender equality.

Maryam has spent thousands of hours delivering powerful speeches, and giving media appearances, from Davos, G7, G20 and the UN, to hot seat political shows, classrooms and workplaces. She is a member of the National Speakers Bureau and a Traill College Fellow at Trent University.
