The Fireside Chats are a new series of volunteer driven, inclusive community events, with proceeds going to women’s charities in the Lower Mainland. Founded by Maninder Dhaliwal, President & CEO Lions Gate International, the focus of the event series is real career and life advice for women from real people.
