The network, an initiative of the Burnaby Board of Trade, worked with Burnaby School District 41 to teach Grade 10, 11 and 12 students about a wide range of professions, from engineering to film production, from social innovation to digital arts.

“There are so many opportunities in our economy, from sciences to the arts to entrepreneurship, and these events created an opportunity for students to see women succeeding and leading in a variety of these roles and learn from their successes and challenges,” Joanne Curry, chair of the network, stated in a press release from the Burnaby Board of Trade.

The two Career and Leadership Exploration World Café events took place at the beginning of February with more than 40 professionals and 120 students taking part.
