McGill University’s Desautels Women in Business hosted its second National Women in Business Conference, dedicated to advancing the success of young women. The two-day event aims to empower women to be curious and involved in the wide range of opportunities and careers available to them in the business world. Students from Canada’s top universities had the chance to hear from industry leaders in an array of fields. Through panels and workshops, they were exposed to the challenges in business, learned about the current rising issues and fields, and prepared for entering the working world. In her remarks, Consul General Nina Fite stressed the importance of women empowerment and gender equality.
