Yesterday was a day full of empowerment, growth and unity as more than 150 women leaders from the Lower Mainland came together at the Women’s Leadership Forum, a collaborative event hosted by DIVERSEcity and Minerva BC.We were welcomed by Qayqayt First Nation’s Stacey Ferguson who shared us a history of the land we were on, and a speech by Her Honour, The Honourable Janet Austin, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, who spoke poignantly on the importance of not only equality, but #equity for women to advance, recognizing that women continue to hold more of the responsibility in families, too. “For there to be equality in the workplace, there must also be equality in the home,” said Her Honour.We were lucky to have a powerhouse panel of women leaders, including Cyndi McLeod, Prem Gill, Shalyma Cambridge, Diane Dou, and Efe Fruci at our DIVERSEtalks panel discussion, moderated by Neelam Sahota and Tina Strehlke.Alongside the panel, we also witnessed artist Chloe Greenberg who transformed the live discussion into a painting and connected with female-led businesses from our entrepreneur programs, as well as calligraphy artist Amun Grewall and cellist Jennifer Moersch who filled the room with beautiful music. Thank you to all the exhibitors, volunteers and participants, too!We left feeling more energized and determined than ever, but the conversations and actions don’t end here. Let’s continue to stand strong and elevate women’s voices across all spheres.Thank you to sponsors Vancity, University Canada West and Global University Systems, as well as funder Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada for making this event possible.#women #womenleaders #equity #surreybc #everyonebelongshere #leadership ...
