2018-2020 SPEAKER SERIES
EMPOWERMENT AND THE ART OF CHANGE
Our 2018-2020 program compliments President Joanne Bullock's theme.
Joanne shares her belief with BPW Barrie members and friends: “It’s all about how we engage with, and learn from, other women in our community, in Ontario, throughout Canada and around the world! These incredible women inspir me every day to create positive change.”
Joanne believes that small changes can add up to something profound. Great masterpieces, for example, are 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! Joanne invites 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.
Each of our monthly meetings are designed to feature our GUEST SPEAKER SERIES, WORKSHOPS, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT and SOCIAL EVENTS throughout the year.
Comments, feedback, speaker suggestions are welcome.
