BioSteel Women’s Day 2019

Can you believe it’s already June? If you live in Canada – and in Toronto, it might not feel like it. It is mid-60s today but the sun slips in and out. June 21 is the first “official” day of summer in 2019. With every new season, it is time we like to reflect on the past and start planning for the future. We don’t reserve this type of reflection for New Year’s only! June is also the time we attend the BioSteel Women’s Day. We have been attending for about 4 years, and love the fact we get to hang around inspirational women, share stories, connect and even get in a great workout! It is so much more fun doing it with a wonderful group of women. We even get time to sit and have lunch and connect with each other.  Be sure to connect with BioSteeWomen’s community on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as well.

BMO is proud to be the presenting sponsor of BioSteel Women’s Day and will continue to support organizations that are committed to supporting the advancement of women and strengthening our communities. BMO is committed to driving long-term systemic change for women in Canada. Over the next three years, BMO is pledging $3 billion in capital towards Canadian businesses owned by Women in order to create jobs and strengthen our communities. You can find news from the BMO Celebrating Women series, educational resources like the “Her Money, Her Way” podcast and specialized toolkits to help grow your business at bmoforwomen.com  or by following the #BMOForWomen hashtag.

We can’t wait to share the details with you during and post-event.

Getting Inspiration

How do you get inspired? It’s important to keep your sources of inspiration visible. I have an inspiration board that helps me to do it. I also like to look at other women and their accomplishments to keep me inspired in both my personal and my professional Life. BioSteel started #BioSteelWomen to inspire ALL women. Every month, they have been and will be sharing some special stories about some incredible women who inspire us daily! Submit your own stories about a woman who inspires you, so we can share her story. You can also see the three inspiration women that BioSteelWomen have featured to date!

She inspires us by taking her passion for sports and giving the same love & devotion to her family.  we asked Marita what leadership lessons she learned in her successful sports career “…I have learned that success can become contagious if we all work as one unit. It elevates the individual and team success to greater heights.”
