Empowerment and Art of Change
It is with great pride and humility that I take on the role of President for the Business and Professional Women of Barrie for the term 2018-2020. This incredible group of working women inspire me every day to create positive change. I promise to support and build on the work that BPW does locally, nationally and globally to empower women personally, professionally and economically.
I believe that small changes can add up to something profound. I know that a great masterpiece, for example, is not just a quick stroke of genius but a result of years of study, interest, practice and perseverance coupled with a well devised plan. As skilled, hard working, creative and determined women, we have built a framework to articulate and move our agenda for equality forward.
In Barrie, Business and Professional Women have been working together for over 70 years! I invite you to be a guest at one of our dinner meetings and see for yourself what a group of supportive and inspiring people can accomplish. Advocacy is at the core of what we do and how we create change but there are many, many benefits to membership: professional support, friendship, mentoring, empowerment and networking opportunities. Please join us and help us with our masterpiece: a just and equal status for all women.
BPW Barrie, 1st Vice President (2016-2018) and Advocacy Chair (2016-2018)
