2019 Awards Nominees Revealed

Twenty-eight days and counting! In less than one month we’ll gather at the Toronto Congress Centre for our Annual Conference and celebrate our 10th Anniversary of supporting women-owned businesses and leadership in Supplier Diversity. The conference website is being updated daily – if you haven’t checked it out lately – do so – entire agenda is now finalized to help you pre-select your workshops and panels and start preparing your questions. 

Of course, the big celebration happens Thursday November 14th beginning at 6:30pm and our first ever Awards Gala with keynote speaker Manjit Minhas, founder of Minhas Breweries and co-star of CBC’s Dragon’s Den. These awards recognize significant achievements of Canadian women-owned businesses, corporate and government leaders, acknowledging their success, their initiatives and their leadership.
