The luncheon is an opportunity to share the stories of female executives who have faced challenges personally and professionally while achieving their dreams. This is the first year we’ll be honouring an amazing client who has worked to overcome obstacles supported by our Professional Women’s Group program. We are very grateful to our corporate community who support this event every year, making it possible.” – Jennifer Halinda, Executive Director of Dress for Success Vancouver.
