After 20 years as the chair of Famous 5 Ottawa, Isabel Metcalfe stepped back from her leadership role, saying her work is “pretty well complete.”
Over the years, she helped Famous 5 Ottawa pursue its mission to empower women and celebrate their successes
“Young women should be at the front of the room speaking and not at the back of the room organizing,” said Metcalfe, whose contributions to a cause that’s become mainstream politics in 2018 were feted at a recent Rideau Club soiree packed with many movers and shakers in the national capital.
The organization Metcalfe helped start “with nothing” in 1997 set an ambitious goal: inspiring women to become nation builders.
