Millennial Womxn in Policy and PS, I'm Muslim are excited to host the first session of #PSIMstories. #PSIMstories is a series of events, where speakers are invited to share their stories as they relate to being a Muslim in their field.
At this iftar, we will be inviting speakers to reflect on their Ramadan experience and how it has impacted their life in Toronto and as a public servant.
