Sunday, March 8 is International Women's Day, with celebrations - both live and online - being held across the globe. I will not be attending any parties, rallies, or lectures, but will instead be connecting with members of the WEOC Board of Directors in Ottawa.
We'll be preparing for meetings with senior members of the federal government, including The Honourable Mary Ng, to discuss the continued importance of supporting women entrepreneurship in Canada. I can think of no better way to celebrate a day focused on equitable representation for women.
No matter which event you attend, hashtag you follow, or article you read, I encourage you to give a few minutes on March 8 to considering what impact gender equality could have on you, your community, and communities across the country.
Until next time,
Alison Kirkland, CEO
