About this event

Elevate is a community looking to elevate one another, elevate their skills, elevate their community, and elevate their lives to a new level. Through support and collaboration with like-minded people and community initiatives, we will elevate our impact on our local community.

February is Elevate: Growth, featuring three real and inspiring speakers all sharing their journey and the blessings and challenges of GROWTH.

Our speakers include:

This is a hybrid event, so you can join us in-person at The Creative Hive in Edmonton or virtually on Zoom!

Chantel Cabaj


		The Virtual Effect presents "Elevate: Growth" image

In 2016, Chantel (who uses she/her pronouns) was inspired by political events to ensure women's voices were entrenched in leadership. With a group of dedicated volunteers, this led to the creation of DirectHer Network, a community committed to demystifying the board experience and expanding the number and types of women in board service.

Chantel, a former lawyer, has been entrenched in the board governance space for the last 6 years through DirectHer, private consulting with numerous nonprofit organizations and professional associations and through her online governance company, BoardWell.

Erinn Trebaczkiewicz


		The Virtual Effect presents "Elevate: Growth" image

Erinn is a mother to 3 boys, a wife, business owner, and a hard working, wild at heart soul. She is the founder of, The Skinny; an ever growing clothing company that she started in her basement in 2014. Erinn is always on the lookout for "what's next", and that drive has helped her take a small home-based online shop and turn it into three brick & mortar storefronts in three of the largest malls in Edmonton, along with an online community of thousands.

With her love for fashion, dedication, and her hard-working nature, it’s no wonder Erinn has been able to grow her business to what it is today in just a few short years. Not one to shy away from taking calculated risks and steps forward, Erinn is currently working on her next project - designing her own original clothing under the label, Double N (you might have heard of her first design, cheekily called The Erinn Cardigan!).

While doing what she loves, Erinn has been able to give back to the community as well, through many projects supporting local charities, companies and other entrepreneurs. To date, The Skinny has been able to donate over $50,000 to various charities within the community! Along with giving back, Erinn is also proud of the many partnerships she has fostered with The Skinny which includes some of the people that have influenced her personally along the way -- including Jillian Harris and The Birds Papaya (just to name a few!). If you know Erinn, then you know she is always looking ahead to her next project, and discovering ways to bring something new and exciting to the community of supporters she has built. Erinn is not slowing down anytime soon, and neither is The Skinny!
