Gala 2020: Raising Our Voices

Thank you to our outstanding sponsors!


Gala 2020: Raising Our Voices was a resounding success! We are so grateful to the incredible sponsors who gave so generously to make this event possible. Please take a moment to review the foundations, businesses and people who helped bring this wonderful gala to viewers across Canada.


On November 18, 2020, Friends of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights are thrilled to host Gala 2020: Raising Our Voices. As a virtual gala, the evening will celebrate people taking action for human rights, and those who make that work possible. It will highlight some of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights’ accomplishments to date as well as its efforts to continue growing, and include a message from new Museum CEO Isha Khan. It will also include moving musical performances and personal testimonies from people across Canada about the importance of human rights. In that spirit, we are honoured to be welcoming Katie Dudtschak as our featured guest.

As Executive Vice President, Ms. Dudtschak leads RBC’s Regional Banking team of more than 20,000 advisors, serving 14 million clients across Canada. In 2019, she revealed her journey to embrace her true self as a woman to family, friends and colleagues.  Now, she will be sharing her personal story more broadly for the first time. From a child of newcomers, to facing learning challenges, to her recent coming out, Katie’s life experiences and leadership experience show the importance of accepting all dimensions of human uniqueness, visible and invisible, to achieve true inclusion.
