“If I was to describe the EmpowHER program in one word it would be - AMAZING! As a newcomer to the country this program has enabled me to network and meet new people, learn about the Canadian job market, the diversity of the country and lifelong skills I will be able to showcase in potential future jobs. It has allowed me to network with those individuals who were able to offer further volunteering opportunities which resulted in finding employment. 

The program allows women to openly discuss topics which are close to heart with no judgment what so ever - the best feeling is being heard by like minded individuals. It's also helped me become more confident in approaching necessary conversation when networking. I've learnt the skill of networking is highly important here in Canada and I am grateful to have met some amazing women who have taught me this. Thank you to Heather and Therese for making me feel welcome and all the amazing women involved in the program - I can't wait to see the future of EmpowHER! :)”
