Women of Inspiration

I am truly honored to have been chosen for the Women of Inspiration SupportHER Award. Being a member of the Universal Womens Network organization has been a wonderful experience. Unlike most members, I’m based out of Montreal, so having the opportunity to represent the team in a different province has been unique and rewarding. I am thrilled to be part of this network and look forward to continuing to be a passionate advocate about the change needed in the workplace with regard to diversity and inclusion.

Tara Wilson, Senior Vice President, and Income Access | 2018 Woman of Inspiration - SupportHER Award

I’m impressed with the caliber of men and women I have met through the Universal Womens Network community. I have built meaningful relationships with like-minded business leaders which have developed into opportunities to speak at national conferences, elevate my business and form partnerships with other influential business leaders across Canada. Universal Womens Network provides an authentic and collaborative environment that believes in embracing diversity, empowering women and the men that SupportHER!

The opportunity to be part of an event recognizing women living their lives with passion and positivity is a true honour. Supporting other women as they strive toward success in their own businesses and communities give each of us a reason to celebrate, and that is what Women of Inspiration is - a celebration of women inspiring others.
