Women's construction group slated to host networking event
The Windsor women in construction group is hosting a networking evening Jan. 24 at Il Gabbiano on Erie Street. The event kicks off with appetizers and a social hour at 7 p.m., followed by the meeting at 8 p.m.
Guest speaker is Melissa McCormick, author of the Canadian bestselling book “The Queen’s Daughter”, the story of a highly publicized case of sexual assault in the Detroit area. An award-winning short film, Determined, was based on the book.
In 2010, McCormick launched a second book, a compilation of success stories of Windsor and Essex County entrepreneurs and business people who have made a difference in the community.
A past president of the Windsor and Essex County Sexual Assault Crisis Centre and the Women’s Economic Forum, McCormick is the 2009 recipient of the Athena Leadership Award presented by the Windsor and District Chamber of Commerce.
Tickets for the networking night are priced at $25.00. Additional information is available from Christine Prymack at email@example.com.
The mandate of the women in construction group is to promote the industry through networking, mentorship, support and education.
