Event Details

Invest in yourself and surround yourself with amazing women by joining us for an evening of inspiration, learning and connections. Listen to a CFO and woman of colour talk about getting to the C-suite, network with other phenomenal women and leave inspired to do even bigger things. #togetherwerise

Our keynote speaker, Leen Li, chief financial officer of Wealthsimple will be sharing the story of her journey to and beyond the glass ceiling. She was born into a poor family in a rural village and came to Canada alone, as an immigrant, when she was 25. She has since gone on to become the chief financial officer of a Canadian investing company that manages $1 billion in assets.

Please note that this space is exclusively for women and people who identify as women.

Let's meet on Feb 1st. Hope to see you there!
The volunteer team at Tamil Women Rising
