Women in Leadership – Montréal

Yesterday we participated in a Women in Leadership luncheon for fearless and fabulous Montréalaises.  We Girl Guides spend a lot of time celebrating and exploring girl empowerment, but it’s so important to keep a palpable connection between those girls and the powerful women they become!

It was thrilling to find out that so many of the women present were Girl Guides themselves back in the day or are now parents of Girl Guides – Obviously a winning formula!

Quotes from panelists that made the hair on our arms stand on end:

“Stop, breathe, where you are is exactly where you need to be” – Joyce Shanks (a Girl Guide mom and former Brownie!)

“Stick to your values, stay true to who you are, learn something new every day” – Anne Pertus

“N’ayez pas peur de prendre des risques” – Sylvie Demers

“It takes 10 years to become an overnight success” – Erica Diamond
