This virtual event is brought to you by EFC’s Women’s Network and celebrates the achievements and resiliency we have cultivated throughout the year. You’ll also gain insights on the ‘50/30 Challenge’, an initiative by the Government of Canada which involves public and private sector participation.

The Panelists include:

Catherine McKeown, Hammond Power Solutions
