NLOWE Shines a Light on Female Business Owners in Sold Out International Women's Day Events Across The Province

This morning, The Newfoundland and Labrador Organization of Women Entrepreneurs (NLOWE) hosted a networking event focused on women business owners in celebration of International Women’s Day. Guests were treated to networking, light refreshments, and heard the inspirational entrepreneurial stories from three NLOWE members in the St. John’s Metro region; Corina Walsh of Shift People Development, Bonnie Edgecombe of Abbyshot Clothiers, and Millie Foley of Baystar Catering. 
International Women’s Day, which is officially observed on March 8th each year, celebrates women’s achievements and acknowledges the challenges that women continue to face in the quest for gender equality. Status of Women Canada’s theme this year is Because of You, which pays tribute to the diverse and inspirational gender equality change-makers we know in our own lives.
Today’s event, which took place in St. John’s at the Comfort Inn on Airport Road, was just one of five celebrations being held across the province this week. This morning, Corner Brook also held their International Women’s Day, which featured business owners Melissa Young of Rugged Edge, Nancy Buckle of Namaste Yoga Studio, and Hellen Young of Vitality Hair, Skin & Laser Studio. Yesterday, Marystown and Labrador City had coinciding events; Marystown guests heard from Melanie Lambe of Wooly Hooker and Mary Fitzpatrick of The Vintage Tea Cup Café, and Labrador City featured guest presenters Danielle King of Pizza Delight & Dominion Lending Centres, Kathy Lynn Shaw of Kinetic Life Solutions Ltd, and Sherry Boland of Labrador Rose. On February 27, Gander held an International Women’s Day luncheon, which featured presentations from Nicole Keats of The Newfoundland Tea Co. and Rebecca Redmond MacLean of Rebecca Redmond MacLean Law Office.
These sold out events would not be possible without the support of our partners, the Grand Bank Regional Women in Business, CBDC Labrador, and CBDC Humber. All proceeds collected from each event are being donated to regional women’s charities including: The Gander Women’s Centre, Grace Sparks House, Hope Haven, St. John’s Women’s Centre, and Islaview Foundation.
NLOWE is pleased to offer services to women in business in Newfoundland and Labrador thanks to the financial support of ACOA and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
