PowHERhouse Media is pleased to welcome Mary Weimer, PowHERlunch Regina guest speaker, February 7.
A PowHERlunch is an intimate lunchtime opportunity for inspiration and connection with a wonderfully diverse cross-section of women making an impact, both locally and globally. Our February theme is: ON THE BRINK OF GREATNESS, and we couldn’t be more pleased to have Mary with us as we explore the conversation of living, learning and leading from a powHERful place. Event details and registration.
