Join us for a special breakfast on March 5th from 7:15 to 9:30 am to celebrate Halton Region’s female leaders and entrepreneurs!

About this Event

The intent of this event is to encourage networking and peer support, create awareness and most of all give us a chance to come together and celebrate!

Our Keynote Speaker: Professor Maja

This year’s theme: Each for Equal.

Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Stay tuned as we add panelists and more guest speakers.

Make sure to book your early bird ticket now!
