On March 8th, 2022, London Small Business Centre, Women in Communications and Technology, TechAlliance of Southwestern Ontario, London Economic Development Corporation, and the London Chamber of Commerce will come together to present Smashing Barriers — Breaking and Building for Everyone, an event that promotes and celebrates International Women’s Day. This year’s virtual event will feature keynote speaker, HR Specialist, thought leader, and Founder and CEO of Bloom, Avery Francis. The keynote will be themed in alignment with International Women’s Day 2022, #Breakthebias, highlighting opportunities to break bias and unite to consciously create change.
Members of the community are invited to gather with us online as we collectively imagine a world that is gender equal, free of stereotypes and discrimination, and where difference is valued and celebrated.
Join us to hear Avery speak on the topic of #BreakTheBias in all aspects of work, school, community, and life – across all sectors.
Great strides have been made since the inception of International Women’s Day in 1909, but the work is just beginning. This day marks a moment to reflect on triumphs, celebrate the power, acknowledge the shortcomings and plan for strategies of change as we revere women. The International Women’s Day 2022 theme, #BreakTheBias, captures what we embrace and work to emulate each and every day in our lives, work and community.
