Balance for Better

How did you celebrate International Women’s Day?


We celebrated by hosting a luncheon panel featuring three extraordinary women from our community. Valerie Trew, Kristel Manes, and Marva Wisdom were our panelists, and Karie Huisman from our team was the moderator. We were so fortunate to have these dynamic women on our panel. They shared their personal and professional stories, opened up about the challenges they’ve faced and celebrated those moments of balance and achievement.


We were joined by Justine Morgan, who shared information about the services that Guelph Wellington Women in Crisis provides in our community.
