International Women's Day 


Join us for our annual afternoon tea and an inspirational conversation about the power of mentorship to change lives.
Along with the City of Nanaimo, we will be launching our new initiative at our International Women's Day event - an initiative called Women Lead.

This initiative creates opportunities for young women to connect with women leaders in our community to learn about their career path and the work that they do – it’s a chance to get inspired by the possibilities for their own career and work life.
