On Saturday morning I found out that the Vancouver Sun had listed me as one of their BC Top 100 Women of Influence. I had a bit of a heads up about a story since I was contacted earlier in the week for a photo, however I did not realize the scope of this article.
The list was sorted by category; from Politics and Community, Arts, Sport, and Communications. Grammy-winners are noted alongside gallery owners, CEO’s, business-owners, and fashion designers. It was such an honor to all see women such as Alexandra Samuel on the list as she has been an inspiration and women of influence in my life (and the Vancouver social media scene in general).
While I didn’t want to compose an entire post about this prestigious honor, I thought it tied in well with the Women in Leadership Foundation’s Super Women and Friends Gala, which I have been meaning to feature.
When November 6th, 2010
Where Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, Vancouver
Tickets Available for $150, tickets include a 3-course dinner, entertainment listed below, and access to a mini-makeover bar.
This year’s theme is “Sea of Possibilities” and promises to be a night of inspiration, celebration, a fashion show with JC Studio, Wear Else and Invito Couture, entertainment, mini-makeovers and prizes. Attendees will also hear a Canadian success story from Top 100 Entrepreneur Joyce Groote of Holeys as she shares her personal story of success.
The gala also serves to raise awareness and funds for the Women in Leadership Foundation’s mentorship program. Last year I gave away tickets to contest winner Lili De Carvalho, who ended up partnering with Veronica Heringer (Manager at Radar DDB & Social Media Marketing Coordinator at Vancouver Latin American Film Festival) through the mentorship program.
If you would like to attend this inspiring evening, please leave a comment about about a SuperWoman in your life that has inspired you the most. Entries need-not be more than 100 words.
A winner will be selected on Thursday, November 4th. They will receive two tickets to the gala where they will be able to enjoy food, entertainment, and some remarkable networking opportunities.
