Each month we will host a Virtual LeadHER Series as our founder and CEO, interviews inspiring leaders from diverse industries. This is a golden opportunity to learn from diverse leaders carving their path, participate in the discussion, and make valuable connections with women from across Canada.
We embrace inclusivity and value diverse perspectives.
Just because we cannot meet in person does not mean that we cannot forge solid relationships, share knowledge, and grow personally and professionally.
We can 10X your circle of influence each month!
If you are someone who values building relationships, interested to grow your connections, and learns from others, this is the virtual networking platform for you!
We know it sounds crazy, but we have a `1000 seat capacity and aim to fill it each month with leaders from across Canada who believe in championing for women, want to make an impact, and increase their circle of influence.
We cannot wait to meet you!
Where you belong! Our goal is simple. Connect to build relationships and learn from inspiring leaders from diverse industries.
