In honor and celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, Casa Foundation for International Development and its Partners will host the Women in Business and Leadership Forum. The Forum will focus on women that have advanced Canada’s trade and economic development landscape and will also celebrate inspiring women in Canada that have distinguished themselves in the business and trade sphere.
The forum will include a business roundtable, a case study of leading women pioneers in their respective trades, keynote opening statements from Senior Government officials, as well as speakers from various industry sectors that have impacted lives or who have helped in fast tracking innovation and growth in the trade, education, and entrepreneurship sectors.
The Forum is expected to welcome over 500 women-owned businesses and startups. The event will also target women in technology, entrepreneurs, practitioners, women leaders, influencers and start- ups. Additional expected participants include creative collaborators, partners, youths in established businesses, and those looking to start a product or service; or pioneers with women businesses.
