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 October 2019, Indigenous women from across Canada gathered together for a second year 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 workshops.
Attendees ranged from entrepreneurs, business leaders, educators, politicians, community leaders and more. The event is not limited to Indigenous women – if you feel called to attend coming events, please feel welcome!
