Panel Discussion – Better Together: Level 0, BMO Financial Group Community Room

Broadening our hearts and minds builds bridges within our city making us stronger together. The purpose of this session is to better understand the stories of the people around you. This will increase your social knowledge and ability to lead people. You will hear speakers that will talk about their experience coming to the city, adjusting to culture and language, high school, and even changes in life like the death of a spouse. You’ll also hear what people are doing to help advance those that are around them. You can succeed AND bring others with you. There is a mindset that you will catch when you hear from our panellists who are building community and advancing women. Leave no one behind. Find out how you can make this city better by being a better version of yourself.
