On October 23rd, GroYourBiz attended the BC Economic Forum: Women as a Catalyst for Growth in Vancouver.
The WEB Alliance Committee produced “Women as a Catalyst for Growth: A BC Action Plan” in May 2015 with hopes to promote and advocate diversity, foster positive mindsets, champion women, incorporate a diversity focus in early education and activate men.
With a full day of fabulous speakers and discussions, here are some of the highlights from the event!
The World Economic Forum has identified women as the fastest-growing economic force in the world. The WEB Alliance Committee produced Women as a Catalyst for Growth: A BC Action Plan in May 2015 to promote and advocate diversity, foster positive and self-affirming mindsets, champion women, incorporate a diversity focus in early education, and activate men.
“Values are not aspirations, they are needs. We need diversity.” said Michelle, and we couldn’t agree more! Jay Dilley also brought attention to mentorship and how important it is for a business owner to have at least one hour, once-a-month meetings with a trusted advisory board to talk about your business, economical and personal goals. To grow your business, you need a board of directors to listen, give you insight, and direct you towards your goals.
Thank you to Chair, Tim Manning, and Co-Chairs Jill Earthy and Lois Nahirney for organizing a fabulous Forum to take action in tackling the Diversity Challenge. It was refreshing and inspiring to meet leaders in our province who are making steps to help women become leaders and successful entrepreneurs.
