The theme we started with in 2012 was Transforming Vision into Reality, and collectively we were able to realize the impact on the ground by marking Equal Pay Day in Calgary, the World’s First International Day of the Girl, and submitting a powerful resolution to BPW Canada on human trafficking.
At the last business meeting, our goal was to build capacity at the executive level and we are now in a strong position to continue transforming our vision into reality.
As a woman in business or in the professions, let your voice be heard on May 8. How can BPW Calgary influence government, businesses and corporations to improve economic conditions of women? How can we attract and retain competent women to lead our club’s mentorship program? How can we embrace women entering the workforce to build their confidence and step up the corporate ladder? How can we all strengthen our professional and personal development and above all… how can we have fun while doing all this??? Let your ideas formulate the club’s strategic plan for the upcoming year.
The evening will begin with election and installing of new executive officers. It will end with a facilitated discussion to prepare for 2013/2014. Dr. Toni Reid, BPW Member and Naturopathic Doctor, will discuss stress management and women’s health during dinner. We will also be renewing memberships and spreading the spirit of reading through our annual book drive to support the Servants Anonymous Society of Calgary in providing long-term programs, ongoing support, hope and wholeness to young women who are victims of, or are at risk of, sexual exploitation.
