Helping Girls Grow Into Leaders
Every year Women of Influence raises money to help girls grow into leaders. For the last 5 years we have done this by auctioning off Job Shadow days with our renowned, high-powered, women of influence from Bonnie Brooks, to Heather Reisman and many more across Canada, women bid on spending a day with their role models, and all the funds go to helping future women of influence.
Stay tuned for this year’s auction!
We know that age 9-13 are the critical ages to develop leadership potential in girls. Which is why we support the Canadian Women’s Foundation Girls’ Fund. They fund programs, across Canada, that empower, build confidence, and provide access to all the building blocks of leadership skills.
