Speakers and workshop facilitators

Keynote Speaker: Zoey Roy 

Youth activist. Spoken word poet. Community leader. Educator. 

Winner of a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, YWCA Saskatoon’s 2013 Women of Distinction Award, and a 2016 Indspire Award, 27 year-old Zoey Roy has created a vibrant life of art and activism despite leaving home at 13 and being incarcerated before the age of 14. Connecting to her community, volunteering, and gaining deeper knowledge of her Métis, Cree, and Dene roots were her first steps to her new life as a catalyst for social change.
