Come hear Abby Davis and Laura Darcy speak on the most important part of a movement:
The 1st Follower at WMAM 2012: “

Abby and Laura’s campaign ‘Be The First’  is powered by their joint presentation that creates awareness of the importance of following a movement. Their interactive talk will be just before our morning keynote with the ultimate example of the power of the follower in spreading a message across the world: Slutwalk Toronto.

Abby Davis and Laura Darcy are both currently students at Ryerson University. Abby is in her 4th year of Social Work and Laura is currently in her 3rd year of Photography. Abby and Laura have worked together for the past 2 years as student leaders living in residence on campus. Through their experiences as student leaders they have begun to view leadership differently as they have noticed a greater need for more people to learn how to follow. They look to highlight the positive aspects of being a follower instead of focusing on the negative connotations. Abby and Laura want to bring awareness to the significance and impact the supporting role can play in a movement.
