On International Women's Day, the QCC will be hosting a virtual panel featuring prominent women from various fields. This event will celebrate the achievements of women and explore how role models, mentors, and women's networks have played pivotal roles in personal and professional development.

Our panelists will discuss their personal experiences and share insights on how they overcame obstacles to achieve success and touch upon pivotal moments that have shaped their careers.

We will examine whether there are enough female role models out there and if there are any differences between men's and women's career trajectories. We will also explore the issues of equity that still need to be addressed and what is currently being done with mentoring and professional networks for the younger generation.

Join us as we celebrate women and their achievements and gain valuable insights on how to overcome challenges and excel in your professional and personal life.
