PowHERlunch Saskatoon | THE LEADER PATH

Wednesday, February 6, 12:30-2:30 pm, doors open at noon

DaVinci Room, Radisson Hotel Saskatoon,  405 20th St E

Limited to 100 guests |  RSVP LIST BELOW

A refreshing approach to the conversation about women in leadership with an intentional focus and integration of a diverse cross-section of women leaders from all sectors - corporate, entrepreneurship, academia, healthcare, energy + resources, agriculture, sport, public sector + politics. 

We are pleased to announce our PowHERlunch guest speakers:

The World Economic Forum’s latest Gender Gap Report predicted it will take 217 years to close the gender gap at the current rate of progress.

‘For the last four years, companies have reported that they are highly committed to gender diversity.  But that commitment has not translated into meaningful progress.  The proportion of women at every level in corporate America has hardly changed.  Progress isn’t just slow.  It’s stalled.’*

WE are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.

THE LEADER PATH: How do we move from where we are to where we want to be as individual leaders? What can we learn from others on the path?

How do we move more women leaders forward on the collective path of leadership to ensure women are mobilized into key leadership positions across Canada.  As we do so, we will find solutions to the most prominent challenges facing Canada women and their families.

“I’ve been to a lot of networking events, but nothing like this one. It was mind blowing ~ truly, the way the women showed up for each other, especially in the POD afterwards. PowHERhouse is an important group for me now; I’ve found my community of women."   -  Tanis

"I am still thinking about it [Regina event] and following up on new connections that I made because of the lunch and reception.  I feel you have created a refreshing approach to this conversation about women in leadership; I especially appreciate the focus and integration on women leaders from all sectors - corporate, entrepreneurship, public sector, politics." - Linda
