Calgarians will have a chance to have a conversation with Michelle Obama this spring, when the former U.S. first lady speaks during an event at the Calgary Stampede Corral.

The event billed as An Evening with Michelle Obama will take place March 23 at 7 p.m.

This will mark her first appearance in Alberta. Organizers say they expect tickets for the evening will go quickly, with audiences eager to hear from the prominent public figure.

“We are excited to host a conversation with Michelle Obama and provide a platform for one of the most respected women of our generation,” said Christian Darbyshire, partner at tinePublic, which is organizing the event.

“She is a role model for millions of people and an inspiring speaker.”

“Anytime you have one of the most popular and well-respected women in the world coming to your city, it’s obviously a big deal,” added Andy McCreath, partner at tinePublic.

As first lady from 2009 to 2017, Obama launched and led four major initiatives: Let’s Move!, focused on addressing the challenge of childhood obesity; Joining Forces, aimed at supporting veterans, service members and their families; Reach Higher, centred on inspiring young people to seek higher education; and Let Girls Learn, targeted at helping adolescent girls around the world go to school.

Obama is a lawyer and graduate of Harvard law school and Princeton University. Her career has included positions such as associate dean of student services at the University of Chicago, and vice-president of community and external affairs for the University of Chicago Medical Center.

The tinePublic partners have previously brought speakers including Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton to Calgary.

The event will be in conversation format with a moderator for between an hour and an hour and a half.
