Celebrating Women of Influence

It has been a very busy week, which this morning began early as I attended the 13th annual Women of Influence Breakfast. The breakfast featured three accomplished women leaders, who spoke about their personal leadership style and experiences.  All three were inspiring, candid, and clearly very successful in their respective fields. One of the three speakers was my colleague, and the university’s own, Daphne Taras, Dean – Edwards School of Business.  I very much enjoyed listening to Daphne’s story.  The experiences of Kimberley Johnathan, Interim Chief, Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, and, Stephanie Lawton, Skip, Saskatchewan Women’s Curling Team were equally inspiring, humorous, and personally very touching.

Overall what a great way to start my day in what has been a very busy week.
