What I’m doing to celebrate International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is around the corner, as it is celebrated annually on March 8, and over the course of the week, around the world. Here’s how I will be celebrating….

I will be speaking at the Annual Women in Business Luncheon, Wednesday, March 6 (not exactly on IWD, but close enough), 10:00 am – 2:30 pm, hosted by the York Small Business Enterprise Centre, the Women’s Centre of York Region, the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Government.
