It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself to the Women's Enterprise Organizations of Canada network. While I officially took on the new role of CEO on September 3, I am not new to the women's enterprise ecosystem. For the past 17 years, I have worked with the Women's Enterprise Centre of Manitoba, most recently as the Director of Communications and Client Services. Over the years, I have been involved with program and event development, connected directly with entrepreneurs as a business advisor, and travelled internationally to share experiences of women entrepreneur support organizations. I am very excited that this position enables me to remain connected with the vibrant and inspiring women entrepreneurs who are located across our country.
This is an exhilarating time as we add to our team and zero in on our priorities. We look forward to sharing with you news and events that are taking place in the ecosystem and the developments at WEOC. We also
welcome your feedback
and look forward to hearing from you.
Until next time,
Alison Kirkland, CEO
