PWN Special Event: Aboriginal Women in Business Speaker Series

The PWN and some of Vancouver's leading Aboriginal women in business (Chastity Davis, Teara Fraser, and Kim van der Woerd) are working together to co-create an Aboriginal Women in Business Network.

The PWN and some of Vancouver's leading Aboriginal women in business (Chastity Davis, Teara Fraser, and Kim van der Woerd) are in the process of working in partnership to co-create an Aboriginal Women in Business Network. We are excited to explore setting up an Aboriginal Women in Business Network and we want your involvement in determining what that network would look like.

Please join us for an evening of networking and a panelist presentation featuring Lycrecia Behn Adin, Lana Eagle and
Kory Wilson (bios below). Attendees will be invited to participate in a Q&A with the panelists and share their ideas for connecting and empowering Aboriginal women in business.

Whether you are able to attend or not, please take a few minutes to complete a short survey and provide us with your input for our direction going forward. By completing this survey, your name will be entered into a draw for a chance to win one of three free admissions to a future Professional Women's Network / Aboriginal Women in Business Network meeting (value $30).
