We are so thrilled to see the return of in -person events. We’ve so missed catching up with our friends, ambassadors and supporters. So in honour of this, we’ve decided to host a special event just for you, our besties.

We’re so excited to be joined by some of the many, many women who inspire us every day, and to highlight and celebrate their work. More details are below, see you there! Bring your friends, Mom’s and sisters!
