International Women’s Day #BreakTheBias Event a Success
Words like inspiring, insightful, and empowering were used to describe our #IWD2022 event.
Presented by Meridian Credit Union Pembroke, our keynote presentation from the County of Renfrew Warden & Township of Laurentian Valley Reeve Debbie Robinson shared these inspiring words, “Have a vision, set a goal, find the path forward.”
As the event was free, we asked our attendees to consider making a donation to the Bernadette McCann House whose mission is to work for change that will end abuse by providing safety, support and education to all those who experience abuse. The event raised close to $300.
Thanks to the Startup Canada Women’s Community Fund, those who participate in our IWD event had the chance to win one of several free Upper Ottawa Valley Chamber of Commerce year-long memberships. Startup Women stands with women-identified entrepreneurs to help support their growth, future goals, and break down the unique barriers that women are faced with when building a business.
