Women’s House to celebrate Women of Distinction

Business to Bruce and the Women’s House Serving Bruce & Grey will jointly host Women Unite: Collective Impact for Global Change on March 7.

The evening will showcase the power of private sector collaboration to create meaningful progress on social issues, while celebrating the women leading this transformation in business.

The Women’s House will also honour two extraordinary, local individuals with Women of Distinction Awards.

Keynote speaker Andi Sharma is an internationally recognized social researcher and human rights advocate based in Manitoba. The recipient of numerous awards, Sharma actively volunteers to promote collaboration and social entrepreneurship.

“Many organizations are working towards the same goals in silos,” says Sharma. “Collective impact brings those actors together to mobilize entire sectors towards desired social outcomes.”

All members of the public (male or female) are invited to attend the celebration on March 7, 2019, from 6 – 8:30 pm, at the Lakeshore Recreation Centre, 1177 Goderich Street, Port Elgin.

Tickets cost $45, including appetizers and dessert, and can be purchased at womenunite2019.eventbrite.ca.

All event proceeds will be donated to Women’s House. This is event is also held in partnership with the Province of Ontario and the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs (ONE).
