International Women’s Day Virtual Cafe: Let’s Share Our Wins!

March 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for a special Virtual Cafe celebrating our WINS as women entrepreneurs on International Women’s Day. Come ready to share!

In celebration of International Women’s Day this year, we’re holding a special edition of the Virtual Cafe and inviting YOU to come and share your recent wins!

Let’s be honest: it’s been a highly stressful and completely unpredictable couple of years. But in the midst of the challenges, many of the women in our region have been building amazing businesses against the odds.

Come ready to share a quick win with the WE-CAN community of women entrepreneurs OR come and get inspired by the stories of others.

The WE-CAN Virtual Cafe series consists of engaging online discussions designed to share thoughts, ideas, tools and solutions as we build a positive community of women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region and beyond.

There’s nothing to prepare ahead of time, just arrive ready to meet and engage with other women entrepreneurs!

Let’s spread some positive energy in celebration of International Women’s Day!

Live Zoom transcription will be enabled during this event. Should you require other accessibility supports, please email [email protected] as soon as possible since advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility services.

NOTE: Registered attendees will be emailed a Zoom link to the online session by separate email prior to the event.
