Role Models at the YWCA

Last week, I attended the YWCA's Women of Distinction Toronto awards. Talk about marvelous horn tooting!  Yes, the chicken was rubber but the company was spectacular.
We heard:
* Be brave for yourself
* Judge less. Understand more.
* And to tell success stories because "images of success shape aspirations - we need to see them to know how to dream them"

The winners thanked their children, their mentors and their communities. Plus the dessert was chocolate.

There is so much work yet to do - not just to correct imbalances and old thinking - but to inspire other women of all ages to run further and dream even bigger on any front!

Don't do work that doesn't fuel your passion; there are not enough hours/years that we can lose any on things that don't matter to us!
