Join the WE-CAN community for an inspiring showcase spotlighting racially diverse women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region.

Join the WE-CAN community as we come together for FUSION 2021, an inspiring showcase spotlighting racially diverse women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region.

The event will be co-hosted by Elizabeth Hesp, owner of Elizabeth Hesp Coaching & Consulting, and Aileen Edwards, owner of AME Consulting.

Elizabeth and Aileen are both coaches in the WE-CAN Project’s current FUSION Coaching Program for Women Entrepreneurs.

Spoken word poet Abena Beloved Green will add her unique brand of artistry to this event, with a commissioned poem written especially for our FUSION audience.

FUSION 2021 will also feature a dynamic showcase of various Kingston area businesses owned by BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Colour) women entrepreneurs. Watch this space for speakers to be announced soon.

The purpose of this event is to bring together a community of women supporting women, and to celebrate the diversity of the exciting business talent among us.

We hope you will join us to share, learn and inspire.
