About the Summit

The EVOLVE Summit will bring together and support ambitious female leaders in the Southern Ontario region by sharing bold ideas, updating soft-skills, piquing critical thinking, and providing strategies for advancement in the current and post-pandemic landscape.

Hosted on a virtual platform, Remo [learn more], this first-of-its-kind event will have a strong focus on content delivery, attendee engagement, and virtual relationship building – a new and uncomfortable concept for many, but more critical than ever.

The Summit features professional development sessions, interactive workshops, panel discussions, networking opportunities, and a forum to enjoy some cocktails while forging new connections with other like-minded professionals.

>> Support Local – Snag a limited-offer VIP ticket including a bottle of Kick Ass Sass Red wine and a meal provided by a local restaurant (Hamilton/Burlington) to elevate your Summit experience

>> Celebrate International Women’s Day with your fellow attendees during the virtual Happy Hour cocktail party

ATTENDEES

Who Should Attend?

Professionals who identify as women seeking business development and networking opportunities, dedicated professional development time, brand and career upgrades for a digital world, and inspiration for thriving in remote working or post-pandemic environments. All gender identities are encouraged to attend including those who identify as men, trans and non-binary people.

PLATFORM

What is a virtual event platform?

Together with our presenting sponsor, Connect Event Hub, we’re pleased to bring you the Remo virtual event experience.  Different than Zoom or a one dimensional viewing experience, Remo allows for both viewing mode and conversational mode, stimulated by small group tables and name keys to help you connect with only those you want to.  Other platform elements include chat, private messaging, guest profiles, and the ability to engage live with our speakers.  We can’t wait for you to experience a Remo event.
