Indigenous women lead. They lead in business, government, communities and families. They are entrepreneurs, executives, students, volunteers, advocates and mentors. They solve challenging problems and they break barriers. Sometimes, Indigenous women do all of this at once. And, often, they do it alone.
There is a pressing need to build a network of support for these women to ensure they thrive and create a smooth pathway for others to follow. In November 2018, Indigenous women from across Canada came together to connect and share their personal stories of development. They gathered new insights and resources to step forward with confidence as they face their next leadership challenges, knowing they have the support of a powerful group of women and companies backing them up.
The Indigenous Women’s Leadership Summit offered keynote presentations, hot topic panels, group exercises and post-event workshops including:
1. Warriorship—Leading Brave-hearted;
2. Business Management Refresher for Entrepreneurs;
3. Blaze your Career Path
Attendees ranged from entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, politicians, community leaders and more.
