Event Description:


Join us for our fourth annual International Women's Day celebration on Thursday, March 8. Presented by TD Canada Trust, the afternoon event will connect, inspire, and empower all professionals in the room. This is a day to celebrate the gains that women have made in gender equity and the men who have supported and encouraged change.

Raise your glasses to the achievements of gender parity over the last year before turning your attention to an inspiring and motivating keynote address from local celebrity and entrepreneur, Fiona Forbes.
Walk into your breakout session feeling empowered as you embark on your next journey - developing and refining an important skill set for business and for life. Attendees have the choice to attend a seminar on emotional health, thinking like a CEO, or increasing emotional intelligence. 
This year's international theme is #PressForProgress. Pressing for progress means encouraging and motivating your peers to think, act, and be gender inclusive. 

Gender parity is an important social and economic issue for us all. We invite both men and women to celebrate and press for progress with us on March 8.

Fiona Forbes, Award Winning TV Host & Producer

Emcee: Karen Daniels, Morning Show Host, 93-7JRfm

Emotional Intelligence for Sustainable Success
Presentation by Sandra Horton, Women's Collaborative Hub

Emotional Quotient is the single most important indicator in producing people who are able to work effectively in organizations at the highest levels or individual leaders. It has a greater impact on people's ability to be productive and work well with others than cognitive intelligence.

This workshop will help you to understand:
  • Why EQ matters more than IQ
  • How to manage negative emotions
  • Having a high EQ can help take your business from good to great
  • How EQ can differ between man and women
  • How you impact others
  • How Social and Culture intelligence are equally as important
  • Why some people excel while others who appear to have similar capabilities lag behind
