Grow, Connect, And Succeed!

ACE Society is excited to be hosting the next panel discussion under the ACE Mentorship Program: Women in Leadership.

This panel session will feature distinguished Albanian-Canadian women who have established themselves as remarkable leaders in their respective fields, and even beyond that, in our community and society.

During the evening, our panelists will highlight their career paths and they will discuss what it means to be a good leader in today’s world. They will share the wisdom they’ve acquired throughout their journeys, and in particular, the successes and hardships that women face in leadership positions.

This is a great opportunity to network, meet like-minded individuals and join this dynamic conversation for an in-depth chat with women leaders from different industries and backgrounds. We encourage students and professionals of all backgrounds to join the discussion.

Please join us for an evening set up to Inspire, Empower and Educate!
