About World Voice Day (WVD)

World Voice Day (WVD) is a worldwide annual event devoted to the celebration of the power of human voice. Since 2015, McGill University has celebrated World Voice Day in collaboration with students, researchers and professors from a range of interdisciplinary fields, and multiple public events have been held to demonstrate the enormous importance of the voice in our daily lives. 


The human voice is susceptible to hormone changes throughout life from puberty until senescence.  Speech-language pathology students and Dr. Nicole Li-Jessen from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders will host a 1.5-hour workshop on the relationship of hormonal changes and human voice.

The following topics will be covered in this workshop: 

  • how voice is produced, 
  • how hormonal changes may affect your voice across lifespan, 
  • how to protect your voice, and 
  • some simple voice exercises to alleviate common concerns.
