NextUp Toronto: International Women’s Day Celebration
About the event
From Instinct To Execution: Trusting Your Gut and Owning Your Power. Experience the power of unity and celebrate International Women's Day with us! In this energizing keynote presentation, Jax Irwin will be discussing the importance of fostering female advancement in the workplace, and breaking down barriers along the journey.
Main focuses will include identifying your power, promoting true change from the ground up, and how women can not only grow in traditionally male dominated spaces… but flourish. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.
