"Never has there been a better time to be a female leader in Canada!"

The time to act is now.  

We must know what it is we want both individually and collectively

with clear targets, a mobilization path and a plan to get there. 

We must clearly and concisely communicate and ask for what we need. 

The importance of convening powerful women for a specific purpose has never been greater. 

It is time to coordinate and communicate our action for its highest impact. 

WE are the leaders we have been waiting for.

Keen to stay connected?

Sign up to be in-the-know as registration goes live, speakers are announced, and all of the event details begin to fall into an absolutely and intentionally EPIC place!
