MAX Women in Leadership | Launch Event

The Muslim Awards for Excellence was founded with the aim to recognize, reward, celebrate & motivate high achievement, along with positive and productive contributions to society by Muslims in Canada. In keeping with the overarching vision to elevate the brand of Canadian Muslims, MAX Women In Leadership is a program with a mission to celebrate, inspire and cultivate leadership excellence in Canadian-Muslim women.
