Diversity Days Keynote and Kickoff with Comedian and Activist Adora Nwofor

Date:  February 5, 2019 | 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
Adora Nwofor is a disruptor, with a sense of humour. She's certainly unique and yet has something relatable to everyone due to her anthropology background and plethora of extraordinary world experiences.

She can be seen on stages hosting events such as Folk Fest, Cariwest, Femme Wave, and was the grand marshal of the Women’s March (2017/2018). As a speaker at the City of Calgary yearly diversity in leadership conference she has a waiting list due to great interest and her inclusive and informed speaking style. Adora's comedy has a feminist point of view, with a dark twist.
