On March 4, we celebrated International Women's Day with a luncheon and panel at Cutten Fields. Three extraordinary women shared with us their personal and professional journey, and how gender-equality has played a role in their lives.
Our panelists were:
- Susan Brown; President, Canadian Federation of University Women Guelph, and retired business owner, Robertson Brown Health Services
- Carinta Mannarelli; Owner, Global Currency Services
- Lianne Manzer; Director - Data Science, RBC Wealth Management Analytics
We also had the honour of presenting Susan Brown with a $3,500 donation from the RBC Foundation to the Canadian Federation of University Women Guelph. Visit their website to find out more information about what CFUW Guelph does to support women's education in our community: https://cfuwguelph.org/
To top off the day, a special treat for our guests was made possible by local women-owned and women-led businesses. We'd like to thank Acqua, Sweet Temptations, LemonMaid Cleaning Services, Blooms and Flora, Bliss Dough, and Comfort and Co for their generous donation to the gift bag that was given to everyone who attended the event.
Thank you to all of our guests for joining us, to the women entrepreneurs for donating their products and services, and to our panelists for sharing their stories - This day was possible because we all came together to celebrate International Women's Day.
