Distinguished keynote speakers for this year’s event included Masih Alinejad, a prominent journalist and advocate for women’s rights, Silvia Vasquez-Lavado, a revered humanitarian, advocate, and explorer, as well as Lisa LaFlamme, an esteemed journalist and broadcaster.

Under the overarching theme of “Go far, Together,” the forum aimed to underscore the importance of collaboration and mutual support as catalysts for achieving success. A diverse array of topics was explored, spanning international politics, journalism, and personal journeys. Several notable businesswomen spoke about their business sagas that showcased their aspirations, struggles, challenges faced and risks encountered. The forum provided an interesting and engaging experience  to the women in audience that offered valuable insights and observations about the evolving commercial world. Another notable aspect highlighted in the event was the surging number of women entrepreneurs across the sectors.

Vasquez-Lavado articulated, “I believe we are all endowed with a purpose on this planet – to make meaningful contributions and extend a helping hand to others.”

The forthcoming forum, slated to coincide with the University of Regina‘s 50th anniversary celebration, promises another stellar lineup of speakers.
