Grit, Resilience, and Grace: What Strength Looks Like in 2022

 Registration is closed for this event
Please join WCT National Chapter Region for their virtual season opener of the 2022 season on October 7, 2021 at 6:30 pm. After the last year and a half of uncertainty we want to celebrate everyone’s ability to persevere (grit), be able to get back up after each knockdown/lockdown (resilience) and take the time you need to take a break and recharge (grace).


The past two years have hit us hard. From the growing Shecession to having our worlds flipped upside down, women across Canada have shown unprecedented grit, resilience and grace throughout the pandemic. We want to celebrate what we have achieved, share our lessons learned and build strength for the challenges of 2022.

Join us for an evening of networking, community-building and learning on October 7, 2021 for our virtual season opener. Hear inspirational words from:
