Virtual Cafe + Business Book Club for Women Entrepreneurs

February 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Come ready to share your favourite business book with us as the WE-CAN community of women entrepreneurs meets to connect and collaborate.

Welcome to the the first “Business Book Club Edition” of the WE-CAN Virtual Cafe for Women Entrepreneurs!

The WE-CAN Virtual Cafe is an online discussion group event designed to share thoughts, ideas, tools and solutions as we build a positive community of women entrepreneurs in the greater Kingston region and beyond.

Join us for our next session on Thursday, February 25th at 10 a.m. (EST). If you’d like, bring along a business book that has inspired your work recently (or at any stage of your entrepreneurial journey). We’d love to hear your recommendations!

The idea for this session’s theme came from our last Virtual Cafe where attendees expressed an interest in sharing books that had a positive impact on them as women entrepreneurs.

We can’t wait to hear your book suggestions!

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