Several times a year, the organization Women of Influence hosts an evening speaker series entitled "Young Women of Influence" and I have had the opportunity to be a part of several of these events.
The most recent event held here in Calgary featured Jennifer Wong the Chief Operating Officer of Aritzia. It is always so encouraging and enlightening to hear young women who are successful in the business world speak and share their experiences, and Jennifer's stories were no exception.
If you are someone who is just starting out, or even has been in her career path for a while, these sessions are always a terrific way to come meet other women and receive encouragement and perspective from women who have been through challenges of their own. I cannot recommend them enough.
