    Women Leading to Performance Excellence 
    Through strong leadership and determination, these talented women have honed their craft and are at the top in their game.  They dedicate their time and experience to coach others who are inspired by their success. 

    Women in Under-Represented Roles Perseverance 
    That’s one of many words this panel of impressive female leaders have in common. These women have all demonstrated tremendous courage and taken risks in their careers to follow their passions or lead in non-traditional roles (ex: military, STEAM, politics).

    Social Changemakers
    Changemakers are the backbone of social, labour and justice movements at the local, national, and international level. All of these women work to elevate the conversation on current issues, create initiatives, and take action for rights and equity.
    Women in Business Entrepreneurship 
    Owning and running a business is not for the faint of heart. These women have amazing stories to tell about how they’ve taken a passion, hobby or expertise and turned it into a thriving, successful business where they make their own rules.
