International Women's Day 2024

Reflecting on the incredible energy and empowerment that filled the air at our International Women's Day networking event last Friday at Holiday Inn Express! Huge thanks to our sponsors, Holiday Inn Express and Chartwell Retirement Residences, for helping us make this event possible.

The morning kicked off with powerful opening remarks from MP Majid Jowhari and MP Leah Taylor Roy, reminding us of the importance of amplifying women's voices in business and leadership roles. Their words were not just inspirational but a rallying cry for greater representation and inclusion.

Constable Erin Brown and Officer Danielle Froud from York Regional Police delivered an enlightening session on Fraud and Scam prevention, shedding light on crucial strategies for safeguarding ourselves and our businesses. Their insights were invaluable, sparking important conversations among attendees.

Our vendor booths were abuzz with activity, offering not only goods but also invaluable insights and connections. It's clear that everyone left with more than just material items; they left with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

As we celebrate women's achievements, let's also remember to raise awareness about the discrimination they still face and take concrete actions to drive gender parity. Together, we can create a more inclusive and equitable world for all.
