One of the key components of the Women in Business awards event year after year is the incredible energy in the room when you gather 300 people to celebrate amazing women in our business community. As gathering in person is not possible this year, the planning committee decided to take a different approach.

With the support of our incredible sponsors, we were able to pull together a slate of activities that effectively highlight the resilience and achievements of women in business in Barrie. I am personally very interested to hear today’s discussion, and to listen to and learn from all of the inspiring stories we will be sharing over the coming weeks.

We are very grateful for the support from the 2021 Women in Business sponsors. Their commitment to our business community, and to women-focused initiatives is critical to closing the gaps that still exist, and to motivating the next generation to make even more progress. Many thanks to:

COVID-19 Advisory

In response to evolving data around the Delta variant and based on the recent experiences of other jurisdictions, the government, in consultation with Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, is pausing the exit from the Roadmap to Reopen.

The Chief Medical Officer of Health and other health experts will continue to monitor the data to determine when it is safe to exit the Roadmap and lift the majority of public health and workplace safety measures currently in place.

Thank you for the work you have already done to protect our community by following public health protocols throughout these challenging times.
