Event Description

Ireland Canada Chamber of Commerce Vancouver are excited to host our 2nd annual ‘Women Leading Change’ event, in partnership with St Brigid’s Festival Vancouver.

We are proud to lead this interactive discussion which will bring together a panel of esteemed speakers who drive the change we see, both across the industries we work in and society at large.

Our pre and post-event networking sessions also allow guests the opportunity to digitally ‘mingle and meet’ each other in a more relaxed setting thanks to our partners at Kumospace.

Over the coming weeks we will introduce you to each of our fantastic panelists. Spaces are limited so register now to avoid disappointment and be sure to submit a question during registration.
