Session to share stories of women of grit

A networking session Thursday, Jan. 19, will give women founders and aspiring entrepreneurs a chance to hear from businesswoman, filmmaker, and author Edie Hand.

Through her foundation, Hand has developed a series of 30-minute documentary programs featuring “Women of True Grit.” She has authored or co-authored over 25 books including the upcoming Women of True Grit, recounting heart-moving stories of women who have navigated with grit to transform their lives and those of the people around them.

“I believe all women no matter their season in life can find the strength to embrace who they are, navigate their direction in life, and possess the potential to impact themselves and those within their world and beyond,” Hand says.

Thursday’s event is part of the SpeakHER series, presented by the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre) in collaboration with the U.S. Consulate in Toronto. The online session will begin at 6 p.m.
